SAVAHCS Concierge Mission Statement
“We are dedicated to serving our Veterans, their families, and our staff by creating an environment of safety, compassion and excellence”
In an effort to provide premier Veteran Centered services for patients and their families, SAVAHCS has developed a Veteran Patient Concierge Service with staff and volunteers dedicated to Veterans’ needs at the outpatient clinics and the inpatient’s bedside.
SAVAHCS is offering Concierge Services for hospitalized patients, as well as Veterans and their families waiting in the Emergency Department, and attending clinic appointments. Guests receive a warm reception, pleasant escort, and personal services to make their experience in our hospital comforting and memorable.
It is the mission of each Concierge to be warm, friendly, approachable and extremely courteous 100% of the time. Impeccable service is the trademark of a SAVAHCS Concierge.
Amenities are an important complimentary service offered to Veterans, family members and guests. Amenities include reading materials, audio books, children activity items, puzzle books, and lap robes.
Concierge Desks are located in Buildings 2, 57, 60, 80, and 90. Desks are open Monday - Friday between 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The Concierge desk in the lobby of Building 2 is also open on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
