VA runs the largest health care system in the world. Most of the time the VA provides excellent health care. VA issues an annual report card on its services. The latest 200 page document reports that last year there were 62,686,340 outpatient visits in VA. The average number of visits to a VA facility was 450,836. Total outpatient visits to a VA facility ranged from 113,184 (Sheridan, Wyoming) to 1,331,446 (Cleveland, Ohio). VA employed 12,462 full-time and 2,837 part-time physicians. Nationally, there were 2.8 staff physician per 1,000 unique patients. If you can make it past the first 80 pages of the report you can find VA facility specific information that may be helpful. VA certainly could make this report card more user friendly, don’t you think!
