The Ernest Childers VA Outpatient Clinic celebrated its newly redesigned Women Veterans Clinic with a ribbon cutting and open house on April 18.

Along with two additional exam rooms and a second nursing exam room, the Tulsa Clinic now has a second women’s primary care team which will allow the Eastern Oklahoma VA Health Care System (EOVAHCS) to better serve our women Veterans.

“Women veterans are the fastest growing group within the veteran population,” said Mark E. Morgan, director for the EOVAHCS. “This additional Primary Care team will allow us to increase the number of women veterans we can serve and be able to provide their health care in a timely manner.”

EOVAHCS serves approximately 3,000 women Veterans, including 1,500 in Tulsa.

Dr. Saina Salim, MD, one of two women’s providers in Tulsa along with Dr. Jean Mathew, DO, said the Tulsa Women’s Clinic is not only focused on increasing access, but also seeing Veterans as quickly as possible.

“A large majority of our women Veterans work or they have children at home, and someone is babysitting for them while they are here,” said Dr. Salim. “When they come in and have an issue, we try and take care of them as quickly as possible. That’s where our team plays a critical role. The nurses play the most amazing role, ensuring that everything is done in a timely fashion.”
