The Veterans Affairs (VA) Maryland Health Care System is a dynamic and progressive health care organization dedicated to providing quality, compassionate and accessible care and service to Maryland’s Veterans. The Baltimore and Perry Point VA Medical Centers, in addition to the Loch Raven VA Community Living & Rehabilitation Center and six community based outpatient clinics, all work together to form this comprehensive health care delivery system. Nationally recognized for its outstanding patient safety and state-of-the-art 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 service to Veterans across the state, including medical, surgical, rehabilitative, neurological, primary, mental health and long-term care on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. 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 1,000 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 Martinsburg, West Virginia. As a part of this larger organization, Veterans are able to benefit from the sharing of staff, resources and services across the Network.
