Who we are





Our mission is to promote and assure that all veterans receive quality care. Particular scrutiny is placed in the areas relative to our membership and all spinal cord injured and diseased (SCI&D) veterans. Our primary emphasis is directed at both the SCI Service at McGuire VAMC in Richmond, Virginia and the SCI Long-Term Care Unit at the Hampton VAMC in Hampton, Virginia.
