The John J. Pershing VA Medical Center, located in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, provides primary care to veterans throughout 29 counties of Southeast Missouri and Northeast Arkansas. Approximately 50,000 veterans live in our service area and about 40 percent of them receive care at our Medical Center annually.
Our facility is comprised of 13 general medicine beds and 40 extended care beds. Tertiary care support is provided by VA Medical Centers in St. Louis and Columbia, Missouri; Memphis, Tennessee; and Little Rock, Arkansas. Four community based outpatient clinics provide primary care and mental health services in Cape Girardeau, MO, West Plains, MO, Farmington, MO, and Paragould, AR. Subspecialty service needs at this Medical Center are met by local consultants and attendings and/or referral to tertiary care facilities.
This is hallowed ground for military vets. This huge facility boasts urgent care for both physical/mental trauma. This is an epicenter of resources that can assist folks seeking V.A. benefits, programs, housing & work.
The staff, security, and doctors are ALL amazing!
Great Veterans hospital. I have been at 5 so far and this is the best.
