What is Quality Care?

“Quality care” has many definitions, but at VA it means:

• The right type of care for your health condition
• Care that results in the best possible outcome for you
• Care delivered with attention to your concerns, needs, and life goals
• Care that keeps you safe from hazards and harm

VA strives to provide the highest quality care possible every day. This site will tell you how we’re doing! For more details about what this site has to offer, please visit our About Quality of Care page.

Featured Story

Veteran Joshua Alles is proud to represent the Evansville Health Community Clinic in Indiana

When Veterans check in for appointments at the Evansville Health Clinic, they sometimes get to see a familiar face.  The face isn’t necessarily one that the patients have personally known in the past, it’s simply the face of a fellow Veteran – instant camaraderie.  “Having worked as a Navy Corpsman helps me relate to Veterans – and most of them feel comfortable opening up to me because I was a Corpsman, they know I will care for them” shares Veteran Joshua Alles.
