Miami VA Healthcare System Programs

The Miami VA Healthcare System is made up of the Bruce W. Carter Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center and it's 8 satellite clinics. We provide comprehensive medical services to Veterans in South Florida,  including primary care, mental health, specialty care and surgical services. In addition, the Miami VA offers extended geriatric care in our 4-story community living center alongside our spinal cord injury center located on the main campus. 

LGBTQ+ Program

If you're a Veteran who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, or a related identity, we’re committed to serving your needs. The LGBTQ+ Veteran care coordinator at your VA health care facility can help you get the care you need in a safe, sensitive environment.

Our LGBTQ+ Veteran care coordinators can answer your questions, advocate for your right to quality care, handle complaints or concerns you have about your care, and help you get started with any of our services for LGBTQ+ Veterans. These include:

  • Mental health services, including psychosocial assessments for hormone therapy and gender confirming surgeries
  • Creative arts therapies
  • Hormone therapy
  • Gender-affirming prosthetics
  • Testing, counseling, and care for HIV and sexually transmitted infections, including PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) and PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) for Veterans at risk for HIV
  • Other prevention, screening, wellness, and testing services

Emergency Preparedness 

Now is the time to start preparing. 

The Atlantic hurricane season is June 1 – November 30. Never underestimate the value of being prepared! 

For the 2022 Hurricane Season, atmospheric scientists Kyle Davis and Xubin Zeng predict a slightly above-average hurricane season over the North Atlantic with 7 hurricanes, including 3 major hurricanes, 14 named storms, and 129 ACEs, or accumulated cyclone energy, defined as the sum of the squares of the 6-hourly windspeeds in knots above tropical storm strength.

Lung precision oncology program (LPOP)

Lung cancer is the deadliest cancer among Veterans, and the second most common cancer in men and women. However, lung cancer screening and early detection can save lives.  To better address care for our Veterans, we have the Lung Precision Oncology Program (LPOP) to foster participation in lung cancer screening, genomic testing, and precision oncology trials with the goal of tailoring treatment to the needs of the individual veterans.
