Three Veterans Administration Medical Centers (VAMCs) are offering long-term care for non-veterans who need such care after an acute care hospital stay related to COVID-19). They are: Hines VAMC (Maywood), Lovell Federal Health Care Center (North Chicago) and VA Illiana (Danville).
In addition, three VAMCs are offering care for non-veterans needing medical/surgical ward-level care or Intensive Care Unit-level care: Hines VAMC (Maywood), Jesse Brown VAMC (Illinois Medical District) and Marion VAMC (Marion County, Southern Illinois).
The availability of the services for non-veterans is on a first-come, first-served basis when an individual meets criteria for the services these centers can offer.
Patient referrals are by email only to the VISN 12 Triage Team at VISN12TriageTeam@va.gov. See IHA’s resource document for more information, including details on the referral process.
