About the Atlanta VA Medical Center

The Atlanta VA Medical Center covers over 130,000 enrolled Veterans living in 50 counties and 10 Congressional districts in northeast Georgia.  The Atlanta VA is comprised of a tertiary medical center with twelve additional sites of care.  These include VA Community-Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) located in:  Austell (Cobb County); Blairsville (Union County); Decatur and Henderson Mill (DeKalb County); East Point and Fort McPherson (Fulton County); Lawrenceville (Gwinnett County); Newnan (Coweta County); Oakwood (Hall County); Stockbridge (Henry County); Trinka Davis Veterans Village (Carrollton County); and the Rome Outreach Clinic (Floyd County), Georgia.  In August 2012 the medical center opened the Trinka Davis Veterans Village as a multi-specialty CBOC and 27-bed Community Living Center (CLC).  This combined facility provides improved access to health care services to Veterans in Carroll, Haralson, Douglas and Paulding counties.  In May 2013, the Atlanta VA opened the Fort McPherson CBOC.
