Minneapolis VA Health Care System
Moving Forward Together: Safe Care is Our Mission
The Minneapolis VA Health Care System (MVAHCS) is prepared to safely care for you whenever you need us. We are gradually increasing routine face to face health care while ensuring a safe environment. The information below will help make your contacts with us go smoothly.
Walk-in Appointments: At this time, we are only taking walk-ins for urgent and emergent issues (to include mental health) and only into the emergency room. Individual departments, clinics, optical, hearing aid, lab and radiology are not currently taking walk-ins. Please call 612-467-1100 for all appointment options and call 612-467-4010 for any Mental Health appointment.
Visitor Guidelines: As we move forward together, we continue to have a highly restrictive visitor policy. However, if you require assistance for outpatient visits and need to have someone accompany you, please limit it to one visitor/companion only. No visitors under the age of 18 are allowed unless preapproved by your clinic.
COVID-19: The Call Center is available Monday-Friday for calls related to COVID-19 symptoms, testing and general questions at 612-467-1100 or Toll Free at 1-866-414-5058 ext. 1100. To keep up to date on current COVID-19 information please visit us on our website at www.minneapolis.va.gov.
