About the VA Maryland Health Care System
The Veterans Affairs (VA) Maryland Health Care System is a dynamic and progressive health care organization that is dedicated to providing safe, quality and compassionate care and service to Maryland’s Veterans. The Baltimore, Loch Raven and Perry Point VA Medical Centers, in addition to five community based outpatient clinics, all work together to form this integrated health care delivery system. Nationally recognized for its outstanding patient safety and cutting-edge technology, the VA Maryland Health Care System is proud of its reputation as a leader in Veterans’ health care, research and education.
The health care system is known for providing comprehensive services to Veterans in Central Maryland and on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, including medical, surgical, rehabilitative, neurological, primary, mental health and long-term care on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. To ensure the provision of quality patient care, the health care system employs a dedicated team of clinical, technical, administrative and support personnel who are specially trained to serve the unique needs of Veterans.
As a leader in education, the VA Maryland Health Care System prides itself on an active affiliation with the University of Maryland School of Medicine and other local colleges and universities. Over 1,100 residents, interns and students from various disciplines are trained throughout the health care system each year. Additionally, most of the physicians who work for the VA Maryland Health Care System hold dual appointments at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. This partnership allows the health care system to offer Veterans the latest clinical practices and procedures available.
The VA Maryland Health Care System is a member of the VA Capitol Health Care Network, which also includes VA Medical Centers in Washington, DC, and West Virginia. As a part of this larger organization, Veterans can benefit from the sharing of resources, clinical expertise and support services across the Network.
