CBOC Coming to Montgomery County

WASHINGTON, DC—The 44,600 Veterans who live in Montgomery County [MD] will soon have a closer-to-home option for obtaining quality health care from the Department of Veterans Affairs.


On September 19, officials from Montgomery County and the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center hosted a Golden Hammer Ceremony to signify the official landmark of the Montgomery County Community-Based Outpatient Clinic, 15810 Gaither Road, Gaithersburg, Maryland. The newly renovated clinic will offer 11,600-square feet with room for a primary care clinic and a mental health clinic as well as space for telehealth, patient education, hearing aid fittings and specialty care.


It will be the first VA community clinic in Montgomery County. Expanding health care access to Veterans in Maryland is a high priority for the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center which already operates five other community clinics in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. The clinic, expected to open in December 2017, will be a welcomed addition for Veterans in the community. The Montgomery County CBOC will have ample parking and is convenient to Shady Grove Metro Station and the Ride On (Bus #43). It is estimated that only about 1/4 of Veterans eligible for VA health care are signed up.
