Why Veterans Choose VA for Health Care Needs

Health care is a very important component to leading and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Whether Veterans are transitioning from the military to civilian life or have been out of the military for some time, it is extremely important that the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), the world’s largest healthcare system, is ready to provide exceptional health care that improves their health and well-being.

Please take a moment to hear our Veterans’ stories as they share “Why We Choose VA?” “It gives me great pleasure hearing these Veterans’ experiences,” stated Dr. James Hines, Chief of Staff. “Their testimonies reveal the great care VA delivers, the special connections they have with their providers and ancillary staff, the camaraderie experienced with fellow Veterans, and interestingly those who came back to VA after years of receiving care in the community. We appreciate our Veterans and are truly grateful they continue to choose us for their care. We take pride in delivering the special services they need, where and when they need it.”
