About VISN 19

The VA Rocky Mountain Network (VISN 19) is located in Glendale Colorado and was established in March 1996 as one of 21 Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISNs) in the Veterans Health Administration. VISN 19 functions as the responsible structure for the planning, budgeting, and service delivery in the provision of healthcare to veterans within our geographic region.

VISN 19 spans a geographic area of 470,000 square miles across nine states and is the largest VISN in terms of geographic area in the 48 contiguous states. VISN 19 serves an area covering the states of Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and portions of Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada and North Dakota. The topography includes the Rocky Mountains, arid regions and areas subject to extreme winter weather. Significant travel distances exist between VA healthcare facilities throughout VISN 19. It is estimated over 700,000 veterans reside within VISN 19's geographic boundaries.

To provide medical care, VISN 19 operates 4 Health Care Systems (HCS) - VA Montana HCS, VA Eastern Colorado HCS, VA Salt Lake City HCS and VA Sheridan HCS ; 2 hospitals - Cheyenne VAMC, and Grand Junction VAMC ; and 78 patient sites of care. In addition to providing health care, VISN 19 also has missions to provide training for health care professionals; to conduct medical research; to serve as a contingency backup to DoD medical services; and, during national emergencies, to support the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS).

The vision of the VA Rocky Mountain Network is to be a comprehensive, integrated healthcare system providing excellence in healthcare services as defined by our veteran population, healthcare value, education and research.
