Vets can get answers on VA Medical Center Facebook page

Veterans with general questions about the Grand Junction VA Medical Center or looking for other resources can now get assistance through the Grand Junction VA Medical Center’s Facebook page.

“We started the Facebook page a few months ago, but wanted to make sure we really knew what we were doing with it before going public,” said Paul Sweeney, the facility’s public affairs officer.

“We think this page is really going to help us pass information to Western Slope veterans and give them a chance to voice their opinions to us,” Sweeney added.

“We do ask veterans and their families think carefully about what information they post to ensure they maintain their privacy and be patient while waiting for a reply.

“Our veterans and their families often have very tough questions and we want to give them the right answer, not the quick one.”

The medical center’s initial focus will be on helping veterans understand who is eligible for VA medical care and directing them to people who can help them access it or other benefits, Sweeney said. “Every veteran’s situation is unique, and the rules change often, so we’re always looking for news ways to get that information to those who need it.”
