The Alaska VA Healthcare System offers primary, specialty, and mental health outpatient care to Veterans residing within a 586,400 square mile primary service area within VISN 20. The Alaska VA Healthcare System provides inpatient services to veterans in Alaska through a Joint Venture with the United States Air Force on nearby Elmendorf Air Force Base as well as through fee basis arrangements with community hospitals. A comprehensive Homeless Veteran Service is also located in Anchorage consisting of a Domiciliary Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program, Veterans Industries, CWT/TR, HUD/VASH, and outreach.
The Alaska VAHCS has a Police Service. Our officers provide 24-hour patrols of the facility and parking lots. For general police assistance, please dial (907) 257-6950. In case of an emergency, dial 911. Report all suspicious or criminal activity, vehicle accidents, and personal property losses to the VA Police while on the facility grounds as soon as possible.
