Summary

Vacancy Identification Number: 1994513

OUR MISSION: To fulfill President Lincoln’s promise – “To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan” – by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s Veterans. How would you like to become a part of a team providing compassionate care to Veterans?

The Kansas City VA is embarking on a journey of moving beyond performance measure and becoming the Healthcare System Veterans Trust and Choose.

Our patients depend on us and we depend on professionals like you.

If you are interested in being a part of a LEAN organization and putting other’s needs before your own this may be the organization for you. Yours might be the first face they see when they come through our doors. Yours might be the voice they hear right after a surprise diagnosis.  Yours might be the eyes they look into as they are pushed in a wheelchair to a frightening procedure.  Your attitude reflects us and everything we are proud of in this organization. By applying for this position you have chosen to help serve our patients and we appreciate you.

With the initiation of cultural change, along with knowledge and tools for change, the Kansas City VA will continue to move towards a practice of continuous improvement.  In the endeavor, we recognize that this change will not occur suddenly, that dedicated individuals like yourself will be required, that leadership involvement is necessary, and employee engagement paramount. 

As a 157 bed medical, surgical, and psychiatric facility, the Kansas City VA provides comprehensive health care through primary care and tertiary care in subspecialty medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is also a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Kansas and the University of Missouri Kansas City. Take a closer look at Kansas City at www.thinkkc.com.
