DeBakey VA opens ‘Welcome Center’ for returning combat Veterans

The Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center (MEDVAMC) recently opened a new Post-Deployment Clinic on the first floor, east side of the hospital in Suite 1B-373, down the hall from the Release of Information Office. This newly renovated space will serve as a “Welcome Center” for our Nation’s newest Veterans — the men and women who have served in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq (OIF).

Recent combat has demonstrated the nature of modern warfare has changed. More war-wounded are returning with complex, multiple injuries such as amputations, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injury, visual impairments, and psychological adjustment problems
