General Information
The Clement J. Zablocki Veterans Affairs Medical Center is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Milwaukee is approximately 90 miles north of Chicago, Illinois and 80 miles east of Madison, Wisconsin. The Greater Milwaukee area is home to about 1.5 million residents. Downtown Milwaukee is located along Lake Michigan, which is the setting for many summer festivals, museums, and restaurants. You can always find something to do in Milwaukee! Sports fans have plenty to choose from -- the Milwaukee Brewers baseball, Milwaukee Bucks basketball, Milwaukee Admirals – American Hockey League, Marquette Golden Eagles Division One college basketball, Milwaukee Wave soccer, and more. NFL football is an afternoon drive away as the Green Bay Packers dominate the fall sports season. Summers in Milwaukee are especially enjoyable due to the multiple festivals on the waterfront and free concerts in parks throughout the city. Milwaukee County has an extensive park system that includes over 140 parks and parkways totaling nearly 15,000 acres.
