Northern Arizona VA Health Care System


Women Veterans

The Northern Arizona VA Health Care System (NAVAHCS) has been proactively preparing to welcome female veterans with high quality, gender-specific healthcare, delivered with dignity and sensitivity, in a safe and secure environment.

One of the services NAVAHCS now offers is comprehensive health care.  Women Veterans now have the ability to request a primary care provider who is designated as a Women’s Health Primary Care Provider (WH PCP).  What does this mean?  This “one-stop” health care model allows the Veteran to go to one provider who can care for both her general and gender specific health care needs.  For example, she can get her annual physical, gynecological exam, and discuss issues such as birth control or menopause management with the same provider.

Besides being a place that cares for the female Veteran, NAVAHCS also understands the female Veteran and her unique needs and offers an array of services including:

  • Cancer screenings (Breast, Cervical, Colon, etc)
  • Osteoporosis screening
  • Vaccinations
  • Gynecological Care
  • Birth Control
  • Maternity & Newborn Care
  • Menopause Management
  • Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
  • Long-term and End-of-Life Services
  • Mental Health Care Services
  • Services for Homeless Veterans
  • Alcohol & Drug Rehabilitation
  • Vocational Rehabilitation & Educational Opportunities

Our Women Veterans Program Manager advises and advocates for women Veterans. She can help coordinate all the services you may need, from primary care to specialized care for chronic conditions or reproductive health. VA health care for women Veterans includes:

Honor, Loyalty, Pride in Service, Patriot, Leader, Military Experience. VA knows women Veterans - what's invisible to most is visible to VA

Primary Care

  • Mental health includes evaluation and assistance for issues such as depression, mood, and anxiety disorders; intimate partner and domestic violence; sexual trauma; elder abuse or neglect; parenting and anger management; marital, caregiver, or family-related stress; and post-deployment adjustment or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Special services are available to women who have experienced MST. VA provides free, confidential counseling and treatment for mental and physical health conditions related to MST. More information is available about MST from the national Women Veterans Health Care program and the VHA Office of Mental Health.

Reproductive health care includes maternity care, infertility evaluation and limited treatment; sexual problems, tubal ligation, urinary incontinence, and others. VA is prohibited by legislative authority from providing either in-vitro fertilization or abortion services.
