Iowa City VA Medical Center changes name


IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The Iowa City VA Medical Center announced Tuesday it is changing its name to the Iowa City VA Health Care System.  The change is effective immediately.

The VA says the name change from VA Medical Center (VAMC) to VA Health Care System (VAHCS) more accurately reflects the overall integration of medical services provided at the medical center and multiple community based outpatient clinic locations.

In addition to the medical center in Iowa City, the Health Care System provides services in Bettendorf, Cedar Rapids, Dubuque, Ottumwa, Waterloo and Coralville, Iowa; Galesburg and Quincy, Illinois. Two additional locations will be established in 2011.
