Primary care is emphasized at the VANJHCS. Veterans are assigned their own health care providers whom they see on a regular basis. Access to a wide variety of specialists is available through the primary providers. In addition to general medical, psychiatry, and long-term care, a full range of medical and surgical subspecialty care is provided to veterans of the VANJHCS in a variety of special programs. The System's Diabetes Education, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Prosthetics, Homeless Outreach Programs, and others have been recognized for outstanding achievement both within the Department of Veterans Affairs and the general health care community. A recognized leader in research, the VANJHCS maintains a very active research program with over 60 investigators conducting pioneering work in areas such as infectious disease, cardiovascular disease, and the health effects of smoking. The East Orange Campus was selected as one of two new research centers that are looking at ways to care for active duty patients and veterans with war-related illnesses.
