Come join the Walla Walla VA team! The Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial VA Medical Center, aka Walla Walla VA Medical Center, is complexity 3 outpatient medical center with over 600 employees that serves approximately 21,000 Veterans spanning 16 counties in 3 states. We have a dedicated team who proudly serves our Veteran base to give them the best care – anywhere! The Jonathan M. Wainwright VA sits on a portion of the former grounds of Fort Walla Walla, whose history dates back to 1818, when it was first known as a trading post for trappers. Fast forward to the 1920s, a portion of Fort Walla Walla’s grounds was transferred to the federal government and work began in the winter of 1921 to convert fort era grounds and buildings for hospital use. The Walla Walla VA Medical Center officially accepted its first 2 patients on May 10, 1922 and initially operated as a tuberculosis hospital, expanding to a general medical center in 1959 and to an outpatient facility in the early 1990s. The Walla Walla VA was named after a local war hero, General Jonathan M. Wainwright IV November 11, 1996. A number of the buildings on the facility’s campus are on the national historic register.

Why move to Walla Walla? Tucked away at the base of the Blue Mountains is a now not so little town of Walla Walla, Washington, named as the “friendliest small city in the United States” as part of a 2011 Rand McNally’s annual “best of the road” contest. Walla Walla can be considered Washington’s best kept little secret. But that secret is out because today, Walla Walla is a bustling town with a city population of 33,927 (62,682 for the county) with over 120 wineries, lots of great restaurants, a coffee shop on almost every corner, and great parks and schools (private and public) for all ages. A yearly balloon stampede and county fair plus a professional baseball team, Walla Walla Sweets (named after its famous onion), is just a small part of some great community activities happening in and around Walla Walla. Walla Walla is the town so nice they named it twice! Come see for yourself.
