There are more than 1,200 VA facilities all over the country. If you’re a veteran, and are enrolled in the VA health care system, and you need to visit such a facility, there’s a tool that can help you locate one nearest you.

Click here to access it, and use it – it’s called the Facility Locator.

Just plug in your street address, the type of facility you’d like to visit (“health”, “benefits”, “cemetery” and “vet center” are the options) as well as the service type, and then hit the blue “search” button.
