Consultants and fee-basis specialists supplement the medical staff. Inpatient care for acute medical and surgical emergencies is provided through an extensive VA/DOD Sharing Agreement with William Beaumont Army Medical Center (WBAMC). The VAHCS has an eight room ambulatory surgical suite located on the fourth floor. Affiliation agreements for residency programs in internal medicine and psychiatry are administered through a consortium agreement with Texas Tech University and WBAMC. The VAHCS provides administrative support to a Veterans Outreach Center and to the Fort Bliss and Fort Bayard National Cemeteries.
