The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Mobile Outreach Clinic will be in Selbyville Thursday, Jan. 7, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Selbyville Town Hall.

Based out of the Wilmington VA Medical Center, the mobile clinic offers a variety of opportunities for veterans in rural southern Delaware to access quality healthcare in their communities.  The outreach effort is designed to improve access to primary care, mental healthcare, and specialty care programs for male and female veterans of all service eras.

Services offered:

  • Primary care services including management of acute and chronic illnesses, women’s health issues, and patient education.
  • Immunizations (including flu and pneumonia vaccines); lab services (including blood draws, urine specimens, etc.)
  • A Medical Support Assistant (MSA) will be available to schedule appointments and answer administrative questions.
  • A social worker will be available for behavioral health referrals and identify available resources.

Veterans seeking care at the Mobile Outreach Clinic need to be enrolled with the VA to receive service.

Those who have not yet enrolled with the VA can do so at the mobile clinic to become eligible for service in the future.

Veterans wishing to enroll should bring two forms of identification and their DD Form 214 (certificate of release or discharge from active duty military service).

Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.

To request an appointment contact Amie Kaba-Roha at (302) 354-8653.
