Year in Review

During this era which calls for action and our best efforts, VISN 4 has risen to many challenges on a journey of transforming health care for Veterans.

We are modernizing VA's culture, processes, and capabilities to put the needs, expectations, and interests of Veterans and their families first.

As we forge into the next chapter (2016), we look back on the highlights and successes of 2015.
