Veterans Affairs (V.A.) hospitals have offered combat veterans medical care since 1930. Veterans honorably discharged from the active army, navy, or air force are all eligible for V.A. benefits. The VA Hospitals are the largest healthcare system in the country and have nine million veterans to care for. It comprises hundreds of hospitals, clinics, and medical facilities. V.A. hospitals still have an impact on the larger healthcare sector. They frequently contribute significantly to biological and clinical research and are pioneers in professional medical education.

The Biloxi Medical Center in Mississippi currently has 716 beds that are staffed. The VA hospitals in Southern Oregon, West Los Angeles, and Edward Hines Jr. are among the best V.A. medical facilities. These facilities are located, in that order, in Oregon, California, and Illinois. Most VA hospitals are concentrated in the Northeast and Midwest, even though many of the best V.A. hospitals are located in the southern or western parts of the country. This is most likely related to these localities' increased veteran population density.
