Job Overview


Vacancy Identification Number (VIN): 1996463

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?

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.

VA encourages persons with disabilities to apply.  The health related positions in VA are covered by Title 38, and are not covered by the Schedule A excepted appointment authority.

This is an EXTERNAL ANNOUNCEMENT. If you are a current, permanent Facility, VA, or other Federal employee, you will need to apply to announcement CD-17-JLT-1996478-BU. All applicants to this announcement will be subject to Veterans Preference.


This announcement is for a position as a professional social worker whose duties and responsibilities relate to the care management of discharging Veterans and Veterans treated at the facility.  The incumbent must use a high level of skill in assessing and treating the complicated psychosocial problems of Veterans as they receive Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) care.  Care management responsibilities also include providing supportive services to families. In addition, the incumbent assists Veterans in coping with acute illness, chronic illness, combat stress, community adjustment, addictions, and other health and mental health problems.  The social work case manager addresses home care needs, homelessness, and transition across levels and sites of care.  Social Work care management practice, which includes psychosocial assessment, diagnosis, and treatment, is focused on helping Veterans and their families maximize rehabilitation and treatment potential and achieve more adequate, satisfying, and productive emotional and social functioning. 

Major Duties include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Uses the social work process (psychosocial assessment, diagnosis, and treatment) in collaboration with interdisciplinary team members to develop a care management plan and psychosocial interventions.
