Aguilar Tours VA Loma Linda Ambulatory Care Center

Today, Rep. Pete Aguilar toured the new VA Loma Linda Ambulatory Care Center in Redlands with local veterans and administrators to learn more about the facility and to discuss veteran health care in the Inland Empire. Rep. Aguilar also attended the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the health center’s opening.

“We need to do everything we can to ensure our veterans have access to timely and quality health care, so I’m glad to see increased services for Inland Empire veterans through the opening of the Ambulatory Care Center,” said Rep. Aguilar.

The facility will offer health care services including mental health, primary care, physical medicine and rehabilitation, a women’s clinic and limited lab and imaging services. The center will officially begin seeing patients on Wednesday, October 12, 2016. For additional information, please visit https://www.lomalinda.va.gov/.

Supporting Inland Empire veterans and improving federal resources for veterans and their families are Rep. Aguilar’s top priorities. Just last month he introduced new legislation to address accountability and responsiveness at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). His bill was inspired by conversations with members of his Veterans Advisory Board and Inland Empire veterans who’ve sought assistance with the VA through his office. Rep. Aguilar has also worked with his colleagues on both sides of the aisle to put veterans back to work, improve transparency and accountability at the VA, and to help reduce suicide rates among female veterans. Rep. Aguilar’s bill can be read in full here.
