VA Mid-Atlantic Health Care Network
About the Mid-Atlantic Healthcare Network (VISN 6)
| To manage the health care of our nation's Veterans, attention is required toward reliability, safety, efficiency and efficacy. The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is the nation's largest integrated health care system. VHA has been organized into 21 regional districts that manage care for more than 8.3 million Veterans in 153 Medical centers and more than 1,400 Primary Outpatient Clinics, also known as Community Based Outpatient Clinics, community living centers and Domiciliaries. The VA Mid-Atlantic Health Care Network (VISN 6) is one of the 21 Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISNs).
VISN 6 is comprised of eight VA Medical Centers and 33 associated community-based outpatient clinics (CBOCs) spanning North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia (see map). The network utilizes more than 13,500 clinical and support staff members, and about 4,000 volunteers to serve greater than 340,000 Veterans annually across our three-state service area.
In recent years the Mid-Atlantic Health Care Network has been rated among the best Networks in VA on clinical quality performance measures. This recognition is a tribute to our staff and a confirmation for our patients that they are receiving the very best in quality health care.
This area is already one of the fastest-growing, most densely Veteran-centric populations in the nation. As the size and density of the Veteran population in the region increases, VISN 6 also reacts to improve access to care. Over the next two years, VISN 6 will expand outpatient services to Veterans in the Charlotte, Winston-Salem, and Fayetteville, NC areas with the development of Health Care Centers in those communities, and a large Primary Outpatient Clinic in Wilmington.
Maintaining quality standards, improving access to care, and enhancing patient satisfaction are core goals for VISN 6. Our mission and our passion -- provide safe, efficient, effective, and compassionate care to the men and women we so proudly serve.
