The VA Puget Sound Health Care System proudly serves more than 80,000 Veterans living in the Pacific Northwest and is the main referral center for VA Northwest Health Network, also called VISN20 (encompassing Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and most of Idaho). We are dedicated to excellence in the clinical care of Veterans, medical education, and research.

In addition to caring for hospitalized patients, our hospitalists perform inpatient medicine consults and preoperative medical consults for medically complex patients considering elective surgery. We have a strong affiliation with the University of Washington (UW) School of Medicine and enjoy teaching medical students and residents. Finally, we are actively engaged in hospital quality and process improvement.
