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