Its home to Team Freedom, designed to be a one-stop shop for the new wave of veterans returning from recent assignments in Afghanistan and Iraq. Those younger veterans have different needs from veterans from earlier conflicts. Scott Casimiro, who was injured by an improvised explosive device six years ago, was a VA patient before landing a job as a certified peer support specialist with the agency. He sees the value of a separate facility for the new veterans. I dont need as much of the testing or the lab work as (the older vets), Casimiro said. I will one day, but not yet. But those younger vets do need primary medical care, mental health care, pharmacists, nutritionists and rehabilitation facilities. All of that is available in the Freedom Health Center. Moving some of those services to the new center also reduces some of the stress at the other Dorn facilities. Some of those stresses were detailed this year in another Office of Inspector General report on problems with staffing and infection control at Dorn. Omura said Friday that eight of the 12 recommendations to fix those problems already have been met, and the other four should be met within the next month. Veterans can rest assured we stand ready to serve them, as they proudly served our nation, Omura said.
