The VA Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS) has made it a priority to ensure that all women Veterans receive equitable, high-quality, and comprehensive health care services.
Programs and services were created to further the wholeness of women Veterans, physically, spiritually, and mentally while safeguarding their well being. Below are some of services that the VA Palo Alto offers:
The California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) works to serve California veterans and their families.
With nearly 1.8 million veterans living in the State, CalVet strives to ensure that its veterans of every era and their families get the state and federal benefits and services they have earned and deserve as a result of selfless and honorable military service. CalVet strives to serve veterans and their families with dignity and compassion and to help them achieve their highest quality of life.
