VHA Office of Rural Health


The VHA Office of Rural Health (ORH) implements a targeted, solution-driven approach to increase access to care for the 3 million Veterans living in rural communities who rely on VA for health care. As VA’s lead advocate for rural Veterans, ORH works to see that America’s Veterans thrive in rural communities. To accomplish this, ORH leverages its resources to study, innovate and spread enterprise-wide initiatives through partnerships. By collaborating with other VA program offices, Federal partners, state partners, and rural communities, ORH optimizes the use of available and emerging technologies, establishes new access points to care, and employs strategies to increase health care options for all rural Veterans. We are committed to honoring service and empowering health.
