When hurricanes hit Puerto Rico in 2017, VA Salt Lake City staff volunteered to head to the storm ravaged island to help Veterans and the community recover.
Our Soldiers Need Your Help
Each year, thousands of those who have protected our country go to the VA for help. And, each year an army of volunteers give a back to those who have valiantly served. Volunteers are an important part of the veterans services locally and around the country. Volunteering is incredibly important to those who feel the need to give back to those service members who have put so much on the line to protect their country and the people in it.
Thank You for Choosing VA Salt Lake City
From all of those who work with the veterans at the VA Hospital in Salt Lake City, we wish everyone a safe, happy, and healthy holidays and upcoming new year!
Holistic Health for Veterans
One little-known fact about the VA in Salt Lake City--they are leading the charge against opioid addiction by conducting specialized classes and providing holistic healthcare, allowing veterans to gain back control of their health. Program Manager Jamie Clinton-Lont explains how these programs are changing lives
Disability Compensation for Veterans
Brad felt too big and too proud to apply for benefits after being wounded in Vietnam. When the symptoms got worse, he went to the VA and found out he was able to not only get treatment for the injuries, but he was eligible for monthly compensation.
Are you a female Veteran? The Women's Clinic can help!
There is a special spot at the Salt Lake City VA Hospital set aside for female veterans: the Women's Clinic. Air Force veteran Becky Kemp has been going there for 17 years, and the VA is hoping that other veterans like her will be able to use their benefits in a safe environment staffed by female veterans that know what patients are going through.
