VA Palo Alto Health Care System


SCI Locations

SCI/D health care is delivered through a "Hub and Spokes" system where VAPAHCS is the SCI Center hub and the other VA Health Care facilities in VISN21 (Sierra-Reno, San Francisco, Fresno, Northern California, and Hawaii) are the spokes. Spoke sites have primary care teams consisting of a physician, nurse, and social worker trained in Spinal Cord Injury care. All Veterans receive their primary care at the spokes but continue to come to the hub for annual exams as well as more complex medical care.
