The Women’s Health Center at the VA Medical Center in North Las Vegas recently celebrated their 1-year anniversary with an open house in the hopes of recruiting more of Nevada’s women who served in the armed forces to sign up for care. The 10,000-square-foot facility is fitted with cutting-edge equipment superior to any Veterans Affairs facility. Until the center and its eight neighborhood clinics opened, there have been few places where women veterans go could for treatment. The center ensures that special needs for gynecology, breast cancer and psychological issues are handled with speed and efficiency. The goal is to reach all of the local women who served and need care for issues ranging from breast and cervical cancer screenings to menopause and maternity care.
The Women’s Health Center features a state-of-the-art mammography tool for taking high-resolution, three-dimensional “tomosynthesis” images to detect breast cancer. That’s in addition to 10 private examination rooms, two rooms for performing procedures, and a “telehealth” service facility where outside experts in genetics, ophthalmology, dermatology and other fields geared to women’s health can connect with women veterans locally for examinations via data links without them having to travel to out-of-state facilities. Procedure rooms come with a special colposcope camera that allows a doctor to take a close-up look at cervical pre-cancerous cells. Mental health experts are available at the center for advice on dealing with military sexual trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder and other psychological issues.
