FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES – VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System (VAGLAHS) will be holding a town hall event on Monday, April 22, 2019 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at National University – Oxnard Campus located at 1000 Town Center Drive, Suite 125, Oxnard, CA 93036.
The town hall will be hosted by Robert McKenrick, VAGLAHS Executive Director of the Office of Care Centers and Clinics in the Community, in the hopes to not only update Veterans and stakeholders on the status of the new Oxnard CBOC but to learn more about some of the challenges Veterans may be facing while trying to access care in the Ventura County Area.
"This is a great opportunity for our stakeholders to provide us with feedback and suggestions on services and care they receive from us," said McKenrick. "It is crucial that we listen and learn directly from those who use our system."
VAGLAHS town halls aim to identify challenges, improve operations and build trust among Veteran patients, their families and the community. The event is open to all members of the public, including Congressional stakeholders, Veterans Service Organizations, state and local governmental and non-governmental organizations, and other community partners.
