Berks Community-Based Outpatient Clinic

In an attempt to better serve our Veterans in the areas in which they live, we have established community-based outpatient clinics CBOCs in Berks, Dauphin, Lancaster, Schuylkill, and York Counties in addition to the primary care clinics located on our main campus in Lebanon. If you are a new patient, you may call 1 -800-409-8771, extension 6000, for information on scheduling appointments in these clinics. If you are already receiving VA care, you may call directly to your assigned clinic for information on appointments or other questions.
