LOS ANGELES – VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System is hosting an Open House for Veterans at the Santa Maria Community Based Outpatient Clinic located on 1550 East Main Street, Santa Maria, CA 93454 on April 17 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Veterans and family members can receive information about VA specialty programs, local job opportunities and healthcare enrollment.

“The Open House is a one-stop shop for Veterans in the Santa Maria,” said Charles Green, chief of outreach. “I encourage Veterans and their families to stop by and learn about healthcare benefits and get enrolled in the VA healthcare system.”

VA Santa Maria physicians, nurses and social workers will meet with eligible Veterans to discuss their healthcare needs. VA representatives from MyHealtheVet, patient education resource center, weight loss programs, National Cemetery and Veteran benefits personnel are some of the few VA vendors rounding out the list of participants.

A visit to the Open House could also open doors for job opportunities. Securitas USA, Army and Air Force Exchange Services, RG Next, and MGE Underground are a few of the employers scheduled to attend the Open House to discuss employment opportunities with Veterans.

“We’re trying to be innovative in bringing special opportunities to our Veterans such as a job resource fair. Veterans can meet directly with the staff who help recruit and outreach for vacant positions,” said Green.

Veterans can enjoy free giveaways, tri-tip lunch and as an added bonus, Veterans in the healthcare system that bring a fellow Veteran who gets enrolled, receives a special gift bag.

For clinic addresses and additional information on enrollment visit www.losangeles.va.gov or call Charles Green at (424) 645–9865.
