What does VA provide to veterans who have suffered polytraumatic injuries?
Polytrauma care is for patients with injuries to more than one physical region or organ system, one of which may be life threatening, and which results in physical, cognitive, psychological, or psychosocial impairments and functional disability. Some examples are: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Hearing Loss, Amputations, Fractures, Burns, and Visual Impairment.

Please visit VA's Polytrauma System of Care website at for all information about services to veterans who have suffered from polytraumatic injuries and for their families. It also has links to each of VA's 21 polytrauma facilities---four Polytrauma Rehabilitation Centers and 17 Polytrauma Network sites.
