We’ve Re-Designed Our Entire Website for One Reason…You!

Our new look is designed to help you easily and quickly access information with intuitive and easy-to-use navigation.

We know that you consider this website our front door. And we want you to feel welcome.

We think you’ll find it easy-to-use, functional, and organized around the information you need. This redesign is based on feedback from Veterans and VA facilities around the country.

The entire Department of Veterans Affairs began the process of an agency-wide website redesign in 2012. Why? Because you told us in our customer satisfaction surveys that you wanted your information in a fresh and up-to-date design.

Some of our home page changes include easier navigation, where to find our community based outpatient clinics, and a quick link to My HealtheVet, VA’s electronic health portal which allows you to manage your health care from anywhere.

Where is the closest VA Medical Center to your vacation destination? Click on LOCATIONS on the top of the page.

What’s our address and phone number? Over there on the right side of the page.

How do you enroll for health care? Click BECOME A PATIENT on the left.

We’re providing links to social networks. You can comment on our Facebook page or re-tweet important news using Twitter . You’ll find all those icons throughout our site.

And because VA health care is about people, we now offer local and national feature stories that highlight real-life Veterans and the care they receive. Features also include subjects like our unique services, special events, and local topics of interest.

We think you will enjoy the new wider page layout.

And even though each VA Medical Center has its own individual website, we think you should experience consistency and clarity across all our sites. That’s happening now and you will soon be able to go to any VA website and enjoy this same new and efficient navigation.

This is your website. This new look and design is the result of feedback we received from you. Thank you. We hope you enjoy the new design and will find time to look through the many pages of information waiting for you behind the new home page.
