The new Rochester VA Outpatient Clinic resides on a 15-acre site and will serve over 13,000 Veterans living in the Greater Rochester area.  VA incorporated patient feedback into the design of the Clinic, enhancing services such as a state-of-the-art dental clinic and dental prosthetics lab; enlarging the outpatient pharmacy with brand new dispensing automation systems; and providing on-site CT scans. In the future, the clinic will expand to include an Endoscopy Suite offering colonoscopy services.  The new clinic offers easy and convenient access through all sides of the building with ample parking surrounding it. 

“We are very pleased and excited to be opening the brand-new Rochester VA Outpatient Clinic.  We are confident Veterans will like the design which provides a healing and nurturing space for patient-centric care” stated Bruce Tucker, Director, VA Finger Lakes Healthcare System.

A groundbreaking event was held for the new Clinic on September 29, 2017.  The new Clinic has approximately 84,000 square feet which is double the space the existing clinic.  There are 672 parking spaces; 47 of these are designated for handicapped parking.   The Clinic at 465 Westfall Road has been in service for 23 years and will continue to be operational for up to a year providing mental health counseling services and physical rehabilitation services.  

The new Clinic will be open for patient care Monday, October 7, 2019.

The Clinic is on the Rochester Regional Transit bus route for Veterans who use public transportation.
