The Miami VA Healthcare System strives to provide the best healthcare possible in the most courteous and efficient manner. However, there may be times when a patient may have a concern that cannot be solved through the health care team on the ward. If this occurs, you are encouraged to contact the hospital-provided patient advocate, who will assist you or your family in your particular situation. You may also contact the patient representative if would like to compliment a particular staff member.
Alternatively, you may contact us through e-mail using the VA National Inquiry Routing & Information System (IRIS).
We strive to always provide the highest quality of care to the veterans of our nation who call this area home. We have established several additional programs to assist you with specific needs or questions.

"Dedicated to Customer Service Excellence" cards are readily available throughout the Medical Center and the Community Based Outpatient Clinics. The cards request information about the employee involved and a brief description of the event in which exceptional customer service was displayed. All that the satisfied customer has to do is fill out the card and give it to employee being recognized. The employee will redeem the card at the Customer Service office for a VISN 8 logo item (i.e. pen, key chain etc.). Once each quarter, the Customer Service Committee will hold a drawing of all employees who received recognition and five winners will receive a $100.00 cash award.
