Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System provides health care to veterans throughout 23 parishes in southeast Louisiana. The system consists of eight community-based clinics located in New Orleans, Slidell, Hammond, St. John Parish, Houma, Franklin, Bogalusa and Baton Rouge. Specialty care is available through the New Orleans and Baton Rouge clinics, and inpatient services are coordinated through community facilities and other Veterans Affairs Medical Centers. Mental health services include treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, homeless services, substance abuse treatment, home-based management of chronic mental illnesses, and a compensated work therapy program. They also provide home-based primary care, respite care, and community adult day care. The Care Coordination Tele-health Program allows veterans to transmit vital signs such as blood pressure and diabetic sugar levels from the comfort of their home to on-call nurses.
