VA Black Hills Upgrades Phone System

Recently, VA Black Hills modernized our phone system to a VOIP (Voice over internet protocol) system, significantly improving the way we communicate with our Veterans. This new system will reduce maintenance, wiring, and call cost and can increase call quality as well as capability of the phone system. The only change you will notice is the need to add a one-digit, location specific prefix before you dial the extension of the person you are trying to reach.  For example, if you would like to reach your nurse at the Rapid City CBOC, press 3 before the extension. If you already know the extension of Patient Services at Fort Meade, simply press 1 before the extension. Trying to call the Patient Advocate at Hot Springs? Remember to press 2 and then the extension. 

Fort Meade Press 1 followed by the 4-digit extension
Hot Springs Press 2 followed by the 4-digit extension
Rapid City Press 3 followed by the 4-digit extension
All other CBOC locations Press 4 followed by the 4-digit extension
Rapid City Vet Center Press 5 followed by the 4-digit extension
