I would like to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to all the Veterans who choose to receive their healthcare at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center or one of our Community Based Outpatient Clinics.  It is because of our Veteran heroes that all of us have the freedom to celebrate the holidays with family and friends. 

On behalf of myself and our over 4,600 staff members who make up our team, I wish warm holiday greetings to all of you and your families.  As a Navy Veteran myself, I feel especially honored to play a role in caring for more than 109,ooo Veterans in southeast Texas.  I’m very proud of the fact that more and more Veterans are making the Houston VA their provider of choice every year.  In the New Year, we look forward to serving the men and women who have served our country and continuing to provide you with the highest quality of care in a timely and Veteran-centric manner. 

Have a wonderful holiday season.

Frank Vazquez, Medical Center Director
