The VA Providence Healthcare System serves Veterans throughout Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. In additiion to our main medical center in Providence, we offer a number of services to our patients through three VA community outpatients clinics: Middletown R.I., New Bedford Mass., and Hyannis Mass.
For your convenience and safety, we have special waiting areas throughout the facility. Please do not gather in the hallways or at the nurses's stations. We have both employees and volunteers available at the Ambulatory Care entrance for patient transport for those Veterans needing a wheelchair or other assistance getting to and from their appointments.
VAMC Providence has a Police Service. Our officers provide 24-hour patrols of the facility and parking lots. For general police assistance, please dial 401-273-7100, ext. 13008. In case of an emergency dial 911, or when on campus you can dial ext. 4999 from any medcial center phone. Report all suspicious or criminal activity, vehicle accidents, and personal property losses to the VA Police while on the facility grounds as soon as possible. Because the VA Medical Center is federal property, all persons and bags are subject to search. In addition, no weapons, alcohol or illegal drugs are permitted.
A nondenominational chapel is located on the third floor of the hospital. Services are offered on a regular basis. Please contact the Chaplain Service at 401-273-7100, ext. 13000 for additional information or to speak with one of our chaplains.
