The Madison VA Geriatrics Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) is a national center of excellence in aging and care for older Veterans. It was funded beginning in 1991 and is one of only 20 such centers in the country and the only one in VISN 12. It provides high quality, patient-centered care using teams of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, psychologists and other health professionals that are specially trained in geriatrics (the care of older persons).

It also provides geriatric education for hundreds of health professionals in training to improve the quality of care for all older persons.
