The VAMC-WPB is located within Congressman Hastings’ Congressional District. The shared-space is located on the first floor of the Medical Center in room 1A-366. Each participating office will hold office hours between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM on the following days:

Rep. Brian Mast    Monday
Rep. Lois Frankel   Tuesday
Rep. Ted Deutch   First Wednesday of every month
Rep. Alcee L. Hastings   Thursday

Congressman Alcee L. Hastings serves as Senior Member of the House Rules Committee, Ranking Democratic Member of the U.S. Helsinki Commission, and Co-Chairman of the Florida Delegation.
