VA/DOD CONTINGENCY ANNUAL REPORT

Annually, VA medical centers estimate the number of beds that could potentially be made available to receive returning military casualties. These reported bed estimates take into account the impact on local operations of VA employees subject to military call up. This annual report includes Estimated VA Contingency Beds and VHA Employees Subject to Mobilization. An annual report is provided by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to select members of Congress.

BED AVAILABILITY REPORTING EXERCISES

Quarterly estimates of VA/DoD contingency beds are gathered from VA medical centers nationally. These exercises are conducted quarterly in order to maintain VA’s awareness and readiness to respond in a timely fashion should the VA/DoD Contingency Hospital System be activated.
