Back-to-school season has arrived, which means packed schedules and growing to-do lists. For our dedicated employees, a healthy work-life balance is more important than ever to maintain our world-class standard of excellence in Veteran care. That’s why we provide a host of benefits, perks and resources to help our employees feel and perform their best – in and out of the workplace. Check out what a few of our employees have to say:

“Physicians within the VA enjoy a very nice work-life balance compared to other health care systems. Primary care physicians at VA see an average of 14-15 patients a day, where their counterpart in a civilian setting can see as many as 22-25 patients a day. Also, the federal benefits package is very attractive with 10 paid holidays, 26 paid days off and sick time.”

– Tim Blakney, VA National Healthcare Recruitment Consultant

“My schedule is more predictable than it would be in the private sector. This is huge because I have two small children, and spending time with them is obviously very important.”

– Dr. Holly Mackenna, Psychiatrist, Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System

“As a mom of two young kids, I’m grateful to have a healthy work-life balance. VA provides a great vacation package, and the insurance benefits are excellent, too.”

– Dr. Christina White, Associate Chief of Pharmacy, Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center
