As one of the flagship Veteran Medical Centers in VISN 6, McGuire VA Medical Center provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient surgical services. The team is excited to welcomes its newest team member, Carmen Quinones.

The Service is staffed by a team of 46 dedicated surgeons who also hold dual appointments with Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Medicine. 

In addition, Surgical Services employs an exceptional team of highly qualified support personnel including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, technicians, and administrative support staff.  In FY2010, Surgery Service provided care to nearly 20,000 unique Veterans. 

“Carmen, Surgical Services Secretary, is a member of the administrative support team which ensures daily functions within the Service run smoothly, said John Hunter, Administrative Officer for Surgical Services.  Her primary responsibilities include administrative assistance to the Chief of Surgery as well as to the General Surgery and Plastic Surgery specialties.” 

I’m dedicated to providing the best care to each and every Veteran, visitor, and staff member I come across with courtesy, friendliness, and respect says Carmen. My husband is a retired disabled Veteran, and I care for our patients the way I would want someone to care for my husband.”

Carmen’s positive and enthusiastic attitude promotes a welcoming environment that conveys the Service’s commitment to offering compassionate and expert clinical care. 

Surgical Services at McGuire VA Medical Center are dedicated to providing expert clinical care in a safe, collaborative, coordinated, and compassionate environment. Mrs. Quinones will be a key member of a team that is committed to ensuring  we meet this promise to every Veteran we treat, every day.
