Toll Free Number Established for Veterans

South Central VA Health Care Network has established a toll free number for veterans who receive care at the VA Gulf Coast Health Care System (Biloxi and Gulfport campuses) and the New Orleans VA Medical Center.

The telephone line will be operational starting, September 1, at 6 p.m. Central Time (CDT). The phone line, 1-800-507-4571, will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This phone number may also be used by families and friends requiring information about patients from those VA facilities affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Veterans may call with questions such as where to access health care, how to receive their prescription drugs, or any other concerns they may have about their care.

Earlier, a toll free number was established to provide information to employees of the VA Gulf Coast Health Care System (Biloxi and Gulfport campuses) and the New Orleans VA Medical Center. This number, 1-888-766-2474, is open from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. (CDT) daily. Employees may also receive information from the network’s website at www.visn16.med.va.gov .
