Veterans’ Health


February 1, 2017

New York is home to the fourth-largest population of veterans in the United States.

We know that half of veterans returning to New York from Iraq and Afghanistan prefer to receive care and services in their own communities, rather than at the VA.

NYHealth is committed to working with a broad set of partners to meet our common goal: ensuring that veterans have access to high-quality care and choices about where they get that care.

In this video, NYHealth staff and grantees discuss the Foundation’s revitalized efforts to improve the health of returning veterans and their families.

Learn more about the work we’ve done and plan to do in the future as part of our commitment to ensure community-based care options are available for veterans in New York State.
