Situation Update

As of Wednesday, September 2, 2020 2:46 PM EDT

Flu season is fast approaching and will overlap with the COVID-19 pandemic. Vaccination is the surest way to protect against getting the flu. Veterans can receive the flu shot at the Medical Center, one of our Community Based Outpatient Clinics, or at an in-network community provider.  Learn more on our Flu Shot Clinic page which will be updated regualalry as more clinics are added.

The facility began expanding services beginning June 15, 2020 and continues to move forward. The safety of Veterans and staff is the highest priority when we consider how we provide health care services and procedures during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We know it is important to you to know what to expect when you come to one of our facilities for a visit.  Watch this short video to learn more by clicking here.

Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has developed a risk-based framework to prioritize non-urgent procedures, in addition to the urgent procedures currently being performed. Evaluation of factors such as patient health, staff safety and resource considerations will guide expansions and scheduling decisions. Rigorous safety measures including employee and Veteran COVID-19 screening, physical distancing and appropriate personal protective attire such as face coverings and frequent disinfection of high-touch services will remain in place at all VHA facilities. Battle Creek VA Medical Center will continue to maximize personalized virtual care options like telehealth, phone consults and wellness checks, as we know these services have been a valuable link to our Veterans during this challenging time.
