“For many years, the hospital was known as a veterans’ hospital and, over the years, our care for veterans has not diminished.”

“We continue to work with the Department of Veterans and provide approved programs such as addictive disorder and veterans and emergency services PTSD programs.

“Veterans gold card holders are covered for any admission and white card holders for all mental health admissions,” Ms Waddell said.
