Spokane's Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center
Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center in Spokane, Washington is dedicated to providing quality health care services to veterans. In carrying out this mission, MGVAMC focuses on providing primary and secondary care, with emphasis on preventive health and chronic disease management. MGVAMC operates 36 hospital beds and 34 rehabilitation-oriented nursing home beds. A mobile clinic, outfitted with two exam rooms, provides selected primary care services to veterans living in remote areas outside the metropolitan Spokane area. MGVAMC is responsible for coordinating access to the full health care benefits package for enrolled veterans. To this end, MGVAMC coordinates referrals to the VA Puget Sound Health Care System and VAMC Portland for tertiary care, as well as utilizing community health care resources. Sharing agreements exist with the 92nd Medical Group at Fairchild Air Force Base, Indian Health Services for Native Americans, and the Idaho and Washington State Departments of Veterans Affairs for the care of state home residents in Lewiston, Idaho, and Spokane. The medical center also provides administrative support to the Veterans Outreach Center in Spokane at 13109 E. Mirabeau Parkway, Spokane Valley, WA. The Spokane VA Medical Center was renamed to Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center in 2013, in honor of two Medal of Honor recipients: Private First Class Joe E. Mann of nearby Reardan, WA who died during combat in WW-II; and Platoon Sergeant Bruce A. Grandstaff of Spokane, WA, who also gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the Vietnam War. Mann-Grandstaff VAMC and its clinics serve more than 30,000 Veterans annually throughout Central and Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho and Northwestern Montana.
