VA Heart of Texas Health Care Network

 

About the VA Heart of Texas Health Care Network

Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) 17 encompasses most of the state of Texas and has administrative offices in Arlington and San Antonio. Currently, VISN 17 oversees 7 medical centers: VA North Texas, Central Texas, West Texas, Amarillo, El Paso, South Texas and Valley Coastal Bend. In FY 18, Houston will join VISN 17 as well bringing the number of health care systems to 8.

This large geographic area ranges from urban centers such as Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio and Austin, to largely rural areas such as Bonham and Kerrville, to the rapidly expanding Lower Rio Grande Valley.  Several military installations in El Paso, Central and South Texas afford the Network many opportunities to collaborate with the Department of Defense.

Our mission is to be a premier network of integrated health care systems that provide optimal access, scope and quality healthcare to Veterans; to be recognized for excellence in medical research and the education of healthcare professionals; to demonstrate continuous improvement and innovation in service delivery that has high patient satisfaction, is cost effective and anticipates changes in technology and the health care requirements of the population served; and to be a resource for national emergencies.
