“We are thrilled that Veterans in our communities will have access to convenient, same-day care, when needed,” said Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, Chief Medical Officer for PhysicianOne Urgent Care. “TriWest [the company responsible for managing health benefits under the US Department of Veterans Affairs] reached out to us and asked that we participate in the program.
