About the Mid-Atlantic Healthcare Network (VISN 6)

VA Staff 

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 18 regional districts (Veterans Integrated Service Networks or VISNs) that manage care for more than 9 million Veterans in 153 Medical centers and more than 1,400 sites of care or Primary Outpatient Clinics, commonly known as Community Based Outpatient Clinics, community living centers and Domiciliaries. The VA Mid-Atlantic Health Care Network is one of the 18 VISNs.

VISN 6 is comprised of seven VA Medical Centers and 34 associated sites of care spanning North Carolina and Virginia (see map). Through a $3.3 billion budget, the network utilizes more than 17,000 clinical and support staff members, and about 4,000 volunteers to serve greater than 390,000 Veterans annually across our service area.

This region is 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 works diligently to improve access to care. In 2017, our programs enabled us care for 9,900 Veterans through TeleHealth—without their leaving the comfort of their homes. Across the VISN, our providers conducted 6.2 million outpatient encounters and nearly 28,626 hospital admissions in FY 2017.

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.


Honor America's veterans by providing exceptional health care that improves their health and well-being.
