Since 1939, this VA facility has been improving the health of the men and women who have proudly served our nation. In 1996, the medical center was moved from Allen Park, Michigan to the current location in Detroit. The John D. Dingell VAMC is one of the newest VA facilities in the country. We consider it our privilege to serve the health care needs of our Veterans in any way we can. Services are available to more than 330,000 Veterans living in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, and St. Clair counties. This population represents approximately46 percent of the Veteran population in the lower peninsula of Michigan.
