DELTONA, FL – 18 Mar, 2017 – The City of Deltona will soon be the home of the new Veterans Administration Clinic, relocating from Orange City, on the western side of Interstate 4. The new clinic will be located in Deltona Plaza, at 1200 Deltona Boulevard, and will occupy more than ten thousand five hundred square feet of office space. The lease with the Veterans Administration was signed in February, after several years of site searching in southwest Volusia County.
The clinic will be housed in one wing on the northern side of one of Deltona’s largest shopping center, and the clinic site will be re-engineered to meet the specific needs of this new medical facility. There will be 27 employees to assist and help the four thousand six hundred veterans who visit the clinic… and the staff includes six primary care providers, two psychiatrists and a psychologist. The increased staff size will also allow the clinic to utilize telehealth clinics, like teledermatology. Telehealth is a collection of methods and means for enhancing health care and public health and support, using telecommunications technologies.
The VA attempts to provide primary care and mental health services within 30 miles or 30 minutes of where the Veteran resides. The importance of a clinic located in the Deltona/Orange City area is that it will provide these services to veterans in that area. The Veterans Administration’s current patient population has been increasing so with the additional space at the new clinic the VA will have the capability to serve more veterans in the Deltona/Orange City area.
Deltona Plaza is located in the Deltona’s Community Redevelopment Area (CRA), the Southeast Deltona CRA. This is a major boost in the City’s medical investment procurement and a great service and convenience to our veterans and the veterans in southwest Volusia County.
