"Sioux Falls, VA Hospital Is Launching VEText"
Starting early April 2018, the Sioux Falls, VA Hospital is launching VEText, a convenient text message system to remind Veterans of appointments and allow them to confirm or cancel an appointment with a text message reply. In addition to the convenience offered to Veterans, the text messaging system allows VA to offer unused appointments to other Veterans.
Every enrolled Veteran who has a cell phone number listed in his or her health record is automatically enrolled in the program.
The text messages do not currently replace the letters and automated phone calls Veterans already receive for appointment reminders, but provide another communication channel between the Sioux Falls VA and Veterans. Learn more »
