This weekend, we honor veterans for their dedicated service to our country. The FAH appreciates the great sacrifices made by our retired service members and their families to protect America at home and abroad.
Hospitals have partnered with the Veterans Administration for many years to ensure all of our veterans have access to quality health care close to home. We are proud to work with the VA to provide support for our nation’s heroes.
Several FAH member companies have also dedicated themselves to hiring veterans so their time of service doesn’t end with their discharge. The values instilled by the military – commitment, diversity, leadership and the ability to perform under pressure – translate perfectly into health care. Each year thousands of veterans transition from serving our nation to caring for our communities. Hospitals are proud to hire heroes from all branches of the military because we know what a difference they can make in every aspect of patient care.
To all veterans across America, we thank you for your service. Happy Veterans Day!
