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 the catchment area, three 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.
