Providing health care to Veterans living in America’s sixth largest metropolitan area and surrounding counties in Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey, the CMCVAMC is Pennsylvania’s second largest VA medical center. It is a member of the VA Healthcare Network - VISN4 and serves as an acute referral center for VA medical centers in eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and southern New Jersey.
The facility is staffed by 2,757 employees, and supports 145 acute care beds and a 120-bed nursing home known as the Community Living Center. In FY 2017, 58,370 Veterans received care through the CMCVAMC, which includes 5,704 women and 52,666 male Veterans. In FY2017, the Medical Center processed a total of 618,399 visits at the main medical center and the outpatient clinics, and 7,413 inpatient admissions. The FY2017 operating budget was $540 million.
CMCVAMC operates Community Based Outpatient Clinics in Burlington County, NJ, Gloucester County, NJ, Horsham, PA (Victor Saracini CBOC), and a clinical annex in Camden, NJ. In addition, two off-site care locations include the Snyder House Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program and an outpatient Dialysis Unit in Philadelphia.
The followings services are offered at each of the community based outpatient clinics:
Affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania and numerous other allied health schools and colleges, the CMCVAMC offers comprehensive surgical, medical and psychiatric care that includes special emphasis programs, alcohol and drug dependence treatment, and rehabilitative care.
In collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania, the men and women of the CMCVAMC proudly treat America’s Veterans, educate some of the brightest professionals in the field of medicine today, and work to advance medicine through our comprehensive research program.
CMCVAMC was recognized in early 2017 by the Deputy Secretary of VA as being one of the fastest improved hospitals in health care quality in the VA system as measured by the Strategic Analytics for Improvement and Learning (SAIL).

Telehealth provides eligible Veterans the opportunity to have virtual visits with their providers from their home, school, work, phone, instead of having to travel to the Medical Center, for some of their appointments.
The MHV program allows Veterans to make appointments, renew prescriptions, check lab results, and have a secure message with their Primary Care/Specialty Care team, from the electronic device.
