As a modern health care facility, the Baltimore VA Medical Center offers Veterans state-of-the-art technology and clinical services. The medical center is home to the world’s first filmless radiology department, which allows health care providers to have nearly instant access to patient radiology images.

The Baltimore VA Medical Center is the acute medical and surgical care facility for the VA Maryland Health Care System and offers a full range of inpatient, outpatient and primary care services. As a surgical specialty care facility, the medical center serves as the neurosurgery referral center for the VA Capitol Health Care Network.

The medical center’s "patient friendly" design features plant-filled atriums, natural light from overhead skylights and comfortable patient rooms and waiting areas. Located next to the University of Maryland Medical Center with a walkway connecting the two facilities, the medical center maintains an active affiliation with the University in the sharing of staff, resources and technology.

Having one of the largest funded research and development programs in the VA system enhances the medical center’s ability to provide state-of-the-art medical techniques and treatments to Maryland’s Veterans. The medical center is also home to the following specialized clinical and research centers:

  • Epilepsy Center of Excellence
