The Alaska Veterans Affairs Healthcare System recently announced plans to hire almost 100 new staff members by July 2018. This will bring the total number of VA employees in the state to around 650, enabling the team to enroll more patients and expand health care access for Veterans in areas where additional medical professionals – including physicians, nurses and psychiatrists – are needed. Currently, they have already hired roughly 40 of the 100 positions desired.
Another advantage of this hiring push is that it will help decrease the workload of current personnel, which in turn can boost morale and performance. This is just one of several reasons why now is a great time to join us as we serve Veterans in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Fort Wainwright, Juneau, Kenai and Wasilla.
As a destination state for many Veterans, Alaska has a lot to offer everyone, from an affordable cost of living to beautiful scenery and countless outdoor activities to enjoy. And with the outstanding benefits VA provides, you’ll have what you need to make the most of life – both on and off the job.
