David McIntyre, president and CEO of TriWest Healthcare Alliance quoted, “It made good business sense to expand our footprints here considering El Paso is one of the top 10 best cities for veterans in the United States, and out only line of business at TriWest is to serve veterans”.
TriWest operates as an associate with the Department of Veterans Affairs, or VA, in executing the Veterans Choice Program for veterans in El Paso as well as throughout 28 states. The Veterans Choice Program grants veterans the opportunity to obtain care out in the community if they cannot receive care at the VA within 30 days or it they live more than 40 miles away from the closest Veterans Affairs facility.
“By making veterans a priority, El Paso is setting itself apart from other communities around the country”, U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso stated, admiring the announcement. “We are attracting jobs, talent, and investment. I am excited that TriWest sees the value and potential in our veterans, in our Downtown and in El Paso”, O’Rourke concluded.
For some time, veterans have been able to profit from chiropractic as well as health care benefits. Currently, the TriWest Healthcare Alliance company, has started an operations movement that may change the lives of many local veterans. Since the launch of the new center, TriWest has promised to hire approximately 225 employees, inviting as many veterans as possible to fill the positions.
