Washington DC VA Medical Center
Ft. Belvoir Community Clinic
Effective Oct. 3, 2016, Fort Belvoir’s Pence Gate will close for four to six weeks due to the Route 1 widening project. Please use the Tully Gate. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The new VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) at the Ft. Belvoir Community Hospital’s Sunrise Pavilion is now open. The 10,000 square foot facility replaces the Alexandria CBOC. The VA-Ft. Belvoir CBOC provides basic medical care, preventive care, and health education for eligible Veterans, including comprehensive women’s health care.
The CBOC is open Mondays through Fridays 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Ft. Belvoir CBOC is located on 9300 DeWitt Loop inside the Sunrise Pavilion. Veterans may access Ft. Belvoir through the main entrance (Tulley Gate) with their VA identification card. Those taking public transportation may take the yellow Metro line to the Huntington Metro station and then transfer to the REX bus (Richmond Highway Express) to access the base.
