ST. CLOUD -- The St. Cloud VA Medical Center has a new name.  Effectively immediately, it's now known as the St. Cloud VA Health Care System.

The name change reflects the the expansion of medical services in multiple locations, including Community Based Outpatient Clinics in Alexandria, Brainerd, and Montevideo.

The St. Cloud VA served more than 37,000 Veterans last year.

The St. Cloud campus opened in 1924.
