About Wilmington VA Medical Center
Wilmington VA Medical Center offers a variety of health services to meet the needs of our nation’s Veterans.
VA offers a number of services that can provide you with the support that’s right for you. Whether you and the Veteran you care for could use some help at home or you just need someone to listen, we’re here to support you.
VA’s specialized programs for homeless Veterans serve hundreds of thousands of homeless and at-risk Veterans each year. Independently and in collaboration with federal and community partners, VA programs provide Veterans with housing solutions, employment opportunities, health care, justice- and reentry-related services and more.
LGBT Veteran Care
Wilmington VA Medical Center seeks to promote the health, welfare, and dignity of LGBT Veterans and their families. We are committed to making sensitive and high quality health care accessible. Our policies and practices focus on ensuring a safe, welcoming, and affirmative environment of care for LGBT Veterans. Our employees receive training in clinically competent care that is responsive to the unique needs of LGBT Veterans. Each VA facility has a local LGBT Veteran Care Coordinator (VCC) who is appointed by their facility leadership. The VCC is responsible for promoting best practices for serving LGBT Veterans and connecting LGBT Veterans to services.
Returning Service Members
Wilmington VA Medical Center is ready to provide health care and more to our newest Veterans returning from the armed forces. Even if you are still on active duty or an activated member of the National Guard or Reserve, you can receive care and benefits assistance.
Our Transition and Care Management (TCM) Program is tailored to meet the specific health care needs of our newest Veterans.
VA Health Care Eligibility
Honorably discharged Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, including the Reserve and National Guard, who served in OEF, OIF or OND, are eligible for five years of free health care (from the date of separation from active duty) for conditions you believe are related to your military service. This health care is provided regardless of your income or eligibility status.
Free health care refers to all services related to the Veteran’s combat experience, even if there is insufficient medical evidence to conclude that such a condition is attributable to such service. Co-payments may be charged for the treatment of non-combat related conditions.
To be eligible for dental care, your DD-214 must be annotated that you did not receive your final dental care while on active duty. You have 180 days from your discharge date to enroll in the VA Healthcare System to receive dental care.
Suicide Prevention Coordinator
Wilmington VAMC has a suicide prevention coordinator to make sure Veterans receive needed counseling and services.
