Invited guests will meet at 12:30 p.m. at the current Charlotte Hall Clinic, 29431 Charlotte Hall Road, Charlotte Hall, Maryland 20622, where transportation will be provided to the ceremony which is being held on the construction site of the new clinic.

The new 17,000 square-foot VA clinic will offer Veterans quality health care and services including Primary Care; Mental Health; Dental, Audiology, Ophthalmology, Nutrition and Social Work Services; Physical Therapy; and Pharmacy Service in addition to other health care services via secure Telehealth technology.

In addition, the Medical Center operates a 24/7 VA Community Resource and Referral Center located in Northeast Washington, DC.
