Company description
Togus became a Veterans Administration facility following the Consolidation Act of July 1930, which joined all agencies administering benefits to Veterans and their Dependents. Most of the buildings which make up our present facility were constructed in the decade which followed. The role of Togus changed gradually from a domiciliary or home to a full-service medical center with the greatest change occurring following World War II with the large number of returning Veterans needing medical care. In 1989, VA was designated a cabinet-level agency and became the Department of Veterans Affairs. Today, onboard Togus VA campus is a Medical Center, a Regional Office and a National Cemetery. The Medical Center, with a staff of approximately 975 personnel representing various disciplines, consists of 67 in-patient beds and 100 beds in the Nursing Home Care Units which provide for long-term care as well as Alzheimer's/ dementia. There are currently five community based outpatient clinics (CBOC) located throughout the state of Maine which provide needed services to Veterans in their communities. These CBOCs include Bangor, Calais, Caribou, Rumford and Saco and there are also VA Mental Health Clinics located in Bangor and Portland. Togus VA Medical Center's current structure is indicative of the VA's focus on increased out-patient health care while simultaneously raising overall quality indicators.
Togus VA staff have a strong commitment to provide the highest quality care in the most economical manner possible. To do this, they have an organized quality assurance program where all managers are responsible for reviewing the quality of care provided, potential risks involved and overall cost effectiveness of the operation.
