Marion VA Medical Center Logo

The VA Medical Center in Marion, Illinois , was built in 1942. Our present Health Care System provides care to 43,722 veterans annually in 27 counties in Southern Illinois, 8 counties in Southwestern Indiana, and 17 counties in Northwest Kentucky. We are a general medical and surgical facility that operates 55 acute care beds and a 60-bed Community Living Center.  Eight Community Based Outpatient Clinics that provide primary care and behavioral medicine services are located in Effingham and Mt. Vernon, IL; Paducah; Hanson; Owensboro; and Mayfield, Kentucky; Vincennes and Evansville, IN. 

Conveniently located at the intersection of Interstate 57 and State Route 13 in southern Illinois, Marion is an easily accessible vacation destination. With Interstate 64 a short drive to the north and Interstate 24 only minutes to the south, Marion is a handy access point to several metropolitan areas, including St. Louis, Indianapolis and Nashville without all of the "big city" costs. Accommodations in Marion range from comfortable hotels to campsites to restored log cabins. Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge, a popular site for hiking, camping, boating and hunting, is located just west of the city on the northern edge of the Ozark Foothills. The city's Kokopelli Golf Club offers an 18-hole course, an on-site restaurant and an eight-acre practice facility. For visitors that crave sports with more intensity, the dodge ball, soccer and gymnastic facilities at Extreme Indoor Sports are sure to satisfy. Marion is also home of the Southern Illinois Miners, a minor league baseball team playing in the Frontier League - all home games are played at Rent One Park. Marion has a special beauty that is complimented by its hometown atmosphere.
