What is Quality Care?

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

• 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.
