Job Description

We are looking for someone to compile a comprehensive list of all Veteran Affairs (VA) medical facilities and Department of Defense (DoD) hospitals/facilities. While all this information is online, it's scattered throughout the internet and will require good data entry and web researching skills.

We're looking to collect the following information:
• Facility name
• Address Line 1
• Address Line 2
• City
• State
• Zip Code
• Country
• Main Phone
• Alt Phone (if available)
• Station Type (DoD, Medical Center, Outpatient Clinic, etc)
• VISN ID (if they are a VA)
• Station ID (if they are a VA)
• Installation (mainly for DoD facilities)
• Region (if available)

As mentioned, the data is out there:

They key, at least with the VAs is the Station ID. Once you have that loaded into something like Excel or Access, you can do updates, etc.

I will make myself available to you should you have any questions or concerns while compiling this list. I am not sure how long it would take to do this task, but would like to have it wrapped up within a month.
