    OUR MISSION: To fulfill President Lincoln's promise "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan" - by serving and honoring the men and women who are America's Veterans. How would you like to become a part of a team providing compassionate care to Veterans?

    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 I 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 subspecialty outpatient clinics including a women's health center. Services are available to more than 206,000 Veterans living in a 53-county 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, VA Memphis North CBOC & VA Memphis Jackson CBOC provided primary and mental health services. 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 in outlying counties.
