    VA Connecticut Healthcare System seeks a Fee Basis (per diem) Emergency Department attending physician for clinical work.

    The West Haven campus is a Level 1-A facility with Primary Care/Specialty Clinics and a 24/7 Emergency Department that receives ambulances from the surrounding community and has an annual census of approximately 14,000 visits. VA Connecticut is a major academic affiliate of Yale University.

    The Newington Campus Treatment Room is a free standing urgent care facility housed with a large Primary Care service as well as selected Medical/Surgical Specialty Clinics with an annual workload of 6,000 patients/year; approximately 10% of patients are admitted to the VA at the main campus in West Haven or to local community hospitals.  Official hours of operation at Newington are 8:00am to 4:30 pm and the facility is currently closed on weekends and federal holidays. The facility supports clinical education of medical students and residents from the University of Connecticut.

     Both units primarily serve a defined population of CT Veterans, approximately 55,000 with an ED caseload composed primarily of adult medicine/surgery and behavioral health urgencies with very few pediatrics and obstetric presentations.

     VA Connecticut Healthcare System was officially formed in 1995. We serve veterans in Connecticut and southern New England. The West Haven facility is a tertiary care facility classified as a Clinical Referral Level I Facility. It is a teaching hospital, providing a full range of patient care services, with state-of-the-art technology and a renowned research program. Comprehensive health care is provided through primary, acute, tertiary and long-term care in areas of medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurology, oncology, dentistry, geriatrics and extended care. Newington is an ambulatory care center that provides primary and specialty care. In addition to our main campuses, we operate six community-based primary care centers throughout the state.
