Permanent leadership is now on board at Arizona’s three VA health care systems and positive change is sweeping throughout the state. With three VA hospital campuses, 25 clinics, nine Vet Centers, two cemeteries and one regional office, VA now has new leadership onboard that is dedicated to improve health care access to the more than 532,000 Veterans they serve. RimaAnn Nelson, director of the Phoenix VA Health Care System, meets with volunteers prior to the local point-in-time homeless count. “This is not the health care system it was in April 2014,” said RimaAnn Nelson, director of the Phoenix VA Health Care System.  “We still have areas to improve and we will not stop looking at ways to improve our health care delivery.  “But I am proud to say, Phoenix VA has truly become the location for innovation.”
