Charles George VA Medical Center


Keeping Personnel and Patients Safe at Veterans Affairs

Shout Out: The linked article includes 3 out of 4 of its photos from our facility and most of the content is an interview that Veterans Affairs and Military Medicine Outlook did with our Jill Earwood and her colleague. It is a powerful testament to VA’s commitment to patient and staff safety. We are very fortunate to have this important technology that captures the spirit of a No Lift Culture. VA is very far ahead of the private sector in this regard. Researchers from a prestigious academic medical center recently reached out to Jill about use of one aspect of our available technology, again demonstrating how far ahead all we are!


Annually, VA does a 2K to promote to support homeless Veterans through donations. This year’s VA2K will be virtual and we look forward to your participation! We encourage Volunteers, Veterans, and community members to get outdoors, get some sunshine, and exercise by walking, hiking, rolling or running a 2K. Or consider a YouTube video like Sit and Be Fit . There are lots of ways to participate!

Share photos of your healthy activity done for VA2K! Participate for your health & wellness and support homeless Veterans! Please see the Asheville VA Facebook page to donate to our Veteran population at the eDonate button or visit WNC VA Health Care System's Giving page to donate.

Please RSVP to the Facebook Event or email Angela Catania so that we are able to track participation.
