Veterans and AIDS

Veterans and AIDS Veterans and AIDS The V.A. Medical Center of New York By Mia Oberlink the Veterans Administration Medical Center in New York City (NYVAMC) invited AIDS Patient Care to visit its AIDS-related facilities, including its new inpatient unit, and to talk to some of the staff involved in caring for PWAs. NYVAMC is located at 24th Street in Manhattan, along a stretch of First Avenue that could be called "hospital row." Bellevue Hospital and NYVAMC's affiliate, New York University Medical Center, are its nearest neighbors. It is also located within walking distance from both Greenwich Village and Chelsea, city neighborhoods that Michael S. Simberkoff, chief of Infectious Disease Section, NYVAMC, and associate professor of Medicine at the New York University School of Medicine, once called the "epicenters" of the AIDS epidemic, because of the concentration of homosexuals residing in those areas. NYVAMC is no newcomer to the field of AIDS patient care. It traces its experience with the disease back to 1979, when one of the first patients with Kaposi's sarcoma was seen there. From 1979 to 1982, 22 AIDS patients were cared for at NYVAMC. Of these, 15 were homosexuals and five were intravenous drug users.
