For Women Veterans, VA is Here

VA welcomes women Veterans. We are committed to providing high-quality services in a sensitive and safe environment at all VA facilities. Women Veteran Program Managers are available at each VA medical center to assist women Veterans with questions and coordinate services (see contact information on this page).

Each woman Veteran is assigned a Women’s Health Primary Care Provider. These experienced providers are trained to deliver comprehensive primary care, as well as routine women’s health care. You will be at the center of a Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) where a provider, nurse, and others will work with you to manage your health care:

  • Primary care: general medical care for acute and chronic conditions, such as chronic pain, high blood pressure, and diabetes
  • Preventive care: immunizations and cancer screenings (breast and cervical), osteoporosis screening and management
  • Gender-specific care
  • Birth control, family planning, and preconception counseling
