The Veterans Administration Hospital in San Diego has since undergone several changes in name and function. In 1988, the hospital welcomed the opening of a state-of-the-art Spinal Cord Injury Clinic as an annex to the existing building. In the late 90s, VA San Diego expanded its location to include three outpatient clinics located in Mission Valley, Chula Vista and Escondido. A decade later, two more clinics opened in El Centro and Oceanside. This collective of care became known as VA San Diego Healthcare System (VASDHS).
Today, VASDHS continues to serve San Diego and Imperial County Veterans with inpatient and outpatient care, innovative research, mental health, rehabilitation and social services.
