    The VAMC in Memphis, TN consists of one main campus located at 1030 Jefferson Avenue, which includes a 60-bed Spinal Cord Injury Unit, and nine community based outpatient clinics (CBOC). It is a tertiary care facility classified as a Clinical Referral Level 1 Facility and one of the most complex medical centers in the VA system. It is a teaching hospital, providing a full range of patient care services, with state-of-the-art technology, as well as extensive education and research programs. Comprehensive primary, secondary, and tertiary health care is provided in areas of medicine, general cardiovascular and neurological surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, spinal cord injury, neurology, oncology, dentistry, and geriatrics. Specialized outpatient services are provided through general, specialty, and sub specialty outpatient clinics including a women's health center. Services are available to more than 206,000 Veterans living in a 53-country tri-state area (Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi).
    Of the nine active CBOCs in this area,3 are VA staffed and 6 are contracted. The VA Memphis South CBOC, located 8 miles from the Memphis VA Medical Center, provided primary and mental health care to 7,174 Veterans. The VA Memphis North CBOC, located 80 miles from the medical center, saw 6,390 patients. The VAMC Memphis also has contract CBOCs located in Smithville and Byhalia, MS; Jonesboro and Helena, AR; Savannah and Dyersburg, TN, which provide primary and mental health care to Veterans. As a result, the Memphis VA Medical Center CBOCs improve access and reduce the travel distance for approximately 33,000 Veterans outlying counties.
