VAMC Manchester, New Hampshire
Spinal Cord Injury & Disorder Services
The mission of the Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Center is to promote the health, independence, quality of life, and productivity of Veterans with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D) throughout their lives. We provide coordinated life-long services to Veterans with SCI/D diagnoses. Our SCI/D clinical team includes physiatry, social work and nursing services. We coordinate care and work closely with all other departments in the facility. We also work very closely with the SCI/D Hub at the West Roxbury, MA VAMC to ensure that SCI/D Veterans are receiving all of the services needed.
We also work very closely with the Paralyzed Veterans of America (www.pva.org). Paralyzed Veterans of America, a congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946, has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of our members – veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction.
PVA uses this expertise to be the leading advocate for:
- Quality health care for our members,
- Research and education addressing spinal cord injury and dysfunction,
- Benefits available as a result of our members’ military service,
- Civil rights and opportunities that maximize the independence of our members.
The New England SCI/D network is comprised of the hub, the SCI/D Center in Boston, and seven spokes across the six New England states. This hub and spoke model of care provides easy access to an integrated and coordinated lifelong continuum of care. There is an SCI clinic at each VA medical facility in New England.
SCI Support Clinics, with nationally trained teams, are located in Augusta, Maine; West Haven, Connecticut; and White River Junction, Vt.
SCI Primary Care teams are located at VA Centers in Bedford, MA; Providence, RI; Manchester, NH; and Leeds/Northampton, MA.
