Via site visits, the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) is the only veterans’ service organization (VSO) with a team of medical professionals monitoring quality of care for veterans with spinal-cord injury/disease (SCI/D). Site visits take place at facilities with SCI centers, SCI Support Clinics, or SCI Primary Care Teams.

Medical Services staff members talk with SCI/D professionals throughout the country and provide recommendations and solutions to improve healthcare for veterans. They help veterans and other people with SCI/D make choices in their healthcare. They act as advocates and representatives of veterans seeking benefits and healthcare with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

In this article, you'll meet the PVA Medical Services staff and learn how they monitor healthcare, serve as a healthcare liaison, and educate those who serve the organization's members at the local level.
