Milwaukee VA: Tracing VA’s origins

When 60 Veterans first made their way onto the Milwaukee VA campus in 1867 and moved into existing farm buildings, things looked a lot different than today. The campus sprawled over 425 acres of rolling grass, hills and lakes. It is an honor that today’s modern-day Department of Veterans Affairs traces its roots back to these hallowed grounds. Little by little, year by year, and decade by decade, more buildings were added to meet the burgeoning need of Veteran health care. Thousands upon thousands of Veterans who called this place home have passed through these grounds -- from the Civil War to today’s military hospital that serves more than 64,000 Veterans annually. Our main hospital looks far different today than when it opened in 1966. All floors have been remodeled, and the facility now provides world-class cardiac, cancer and mental health services. Our recent changes include the Spinal Cord Injury Center, robotic surgery and new catheterization lab. These improvements support innovative, life-saving and life-changing care to Veterans of all ages and eras.

Seems like a great day to applaud the doctors and staff at this great facility! Thank you for your fabulous care.
Sam's Club Salutes you! To all our Veterans and active military, Wednesday come to your Sam's Club 8100 North 124th Milwaukee for lunch on us! Wednesday 10am to 12pm we want to Salute you for all that you do for us!
I need help replacing my doctor. Who do I talk to?
Why is the VA mutilating kittens in their cat labs? This is gross and makes me ashamed to be part of the VA. De-fund VA's cat labs.
Ron Sodko - UAW Veteran - Illinois A good friend and Vietnam Veteran, who has made some great donations to the Top of Illinois Homeless Veterans Stand Down, was telling me tonight about his experience with the Zablocki VA Hospital in Milwaukee. He had been suffering some chest & arm issues, finally seeing a doctor at the VA Hospital, He ended up with a quad bypass, and today is loving life, and enjoying life, Hearing from my Vietnam brothers words of how great the Hospital is, and for what my good friend "Doc" (Jeff Dentice) does for the Veterans at this Hospital, "I truly appreciate him" Thank you Zablocki VA for taking care of my friend, and thank you for letting my friend "Doc" and his great group of volunteers be able to continue helping our Veterans @ the Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee, WI.

What is wrong with the phone system at the va? I have called three departments. All three can't hear me nor understand English.
I have a very low opinion of the Va in Milwaukee. They pick and choose you they wish to help.😡😠😡
Will you be making a statement about your employee Matt Buchan, who promotes violence against protestors? Will he be receiving anti-violence training? Will he be facing suspension or termination? I'm sure the Veterans you serve would like to know your answers. TMJ4 News WISN 12 NEWS CBS 58 Fox 6 News
What type of compensation is the MKE VA offering their nurses who have and continue to work on the Covid unit? Having to don and doff in a negative pressure area everyday they work? Oh and many final salutes along the way for soldiers who have died due to Covid? This is traumatic, just wondering as this isn’t going away anytime soon!
It is so disgusting to see your PR nonsense. No bad raps: VA one of the best in Milwaukee (What a load of bull. Pure public relations garbage. When I experience first-hand the negligence, the abusive attitudes prevalent throughout your facilities, it turns my stomach to see you spewing this filthy PR garbage. You made VA Choice, Community Care, a slow process... that doesn't pay its bills, certainly not on time [years later, maybe]. You've reduced diagnostics and curative treatments to practically nonexistent. You are the monsters of society; trying to put on a pretty little PR face.... Disgusting, totally disgusting.)
Please be aware of your nurse.
