Wayfinding, Tobacco-Free, and Roads

Confused where to go when you get to our Des Moines campus?  Check out our interactive wayfinding tool!



Beginning July 1, 2019, VACIHCS went tobacco free on all VA facility and grounds for patients, visitors, volunteers, contractors and vendors.   Thank you for your support in providing great healthcare outcomes!

  • Medication assistance will be available to patients as medical conditions allow. 
  • Veterans and visitors are strongly encouraged to leave all tobacco and smoking materials at home. Some areas may require materials to be stored during your visit.
  • Interested in quitting tobacco? Our VA has more treatment options available than ever before. Talk to your primary care team today.


The Des Moines campus has three entrances at 30th Street (East Entrance), Lower Beaver Rd/Euclid Ave. (Main Entrance), and 36th Street off of Douglas Avenue.  Throughout the summer and through the fall, different entrances will be closed due to road work and construction.  Please look for detour signs when you come for your appointment.
