Caring for our Rural Veteran Population



As the Nation’s second-largest health care system, the Veterans Health Administration has hospitals, clinics, and facilities in every corner of the country. As such, VA is in need of qualified health care professionals to serve the over 40 percent of our Veteran patients living in rural areas, and nearly half of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans from these communities.

Health care professionals at our rural locations receive the same benefits shared throughout VHA. Whether you’re looking for a change of scenery, or you’re from a small town and want to stay close to home, you can enjoy the benefits of:

  • Advanced facilities
  • Flexible time off
  • Robust liability coverage
  • Generous health, life and retirement packages

Plus, rural providers get additional benefits that are not as common in urban locations, such as:

  • Lower housing costs
  • Less traffic and pollution
  • A slower pace of life and less stress
  • A greater feeling of safety and security in the community
