Shape Veterans’ health care as a VA Medical Center executive director in one of six cities across the country.
Here at VA, we consistently plan ways to innovate and improve the level of service we provide to the over 9 million Veterans who rely on us for their health care. Our VA health executives play an integral role in shaping these plans, spearheading the delivery of integrated care to a diverse population of Veterans.
The question is: Are you ready to lead care delivery for the nation’s heroes in your community?
Licensed physician/dental officers and health system administrators prepared for this challenge are invited to apply for open positions in six cities: Battle Creek, Michigan; Cincinnati, Ohio; Martinsburg, West Virginia; Montgomery, Alabama; Poplar Bluff, Missouri; and Tomah, Wisconsin.
As VA Medical Center executive directors, you help lead thousands of clinicians, nurses, mental health professionals, medical technicians and support staff who carry out VA’s mission with honor and integrity.
“Since its inception, VA has led health care innovation, including establishing its comprehensive electronic health record and patient-centered primary care model,” said Darren Sherrard, associate director of recruitment and marketing at VA. “As part of our executive team, you’ll lead a whole-health revolution to meet Veterans’ overall health and life goals within and beyond the walls of the medical center.”
