Northern Indiana Healthcare System (Marion, IN Campus)

Northern Indiana Healthcare System (Marion, IN Campus) Logo

VA Northern Indiana Health Care System (NIHCS) was formed in 1995 by the integration of the VA Medical Centers in Fort Wayne and Marion, Indiana. The mission of VA Northern Indiana Health Care System is to provide coordinated, compassionate and comprehensive quality primary care, mental health services and extended care to veterans in a timely, accessible and cost effective manner. The Fort Wayne Campus offers primary and secondary medical and surgical services, and the Marion Campus offers a full range of psychiatry services, nursing home care, and extended care services. Primary care clinics are available at both campuses and at Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) located in Peru, Goshen, South Bend and Muncie, Indiana. Although the Marion Campus is well over 110 years old and the Fort Wayne Campus was constructed in 1950, recently completed renovations and construction, and continuous maintenance, ensure an attractive, state-of-the-art healthcare environment.
