Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center (AVAMC)

In a partnership that reaches back more than 60 years, Emory medical faculty provide virtually all physician care for more than 60,000 veterans seen every year at the Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the largest, most complex tertiary care VA facility in the Southeast. Emory scientists also have made the Atlanta VA one of the nation's top VA centers for research, in areas ranging from infectious disease to dementia and traumatic brain injury.

Emory and the Atlanta VA Medical Center share back-to-back campuses, and a commitment to give veterans the quality of health care they deserve, desire, and need. Some 250 Emory physicians along with 142 full-time equivalent residents provide physician care at the facility, which has 165-bed hospital beds and 120 nursing home beds.

Last year, Emory-directed research funding totaled $29 million and involved more than 500 projects covering areas ranging from diabetes and drug addiction to cancer, HIV/AIDS, depression, hypertension, and dementia.
