Choose VA to shape care

Executive directors also shape the medical facility’s culture and service to the most diverse population of Veterans in history.

“Strong, effective leadership is crucial to providing the best healthcare for our Veterans,” said Darren Sherrard, associate director of Recruitment and Marketing at VA. “We look to our VAMC executive directors to ensure that employees work in an inclusive and supportive environment and are free to administer high-quality care.”

Executive directors report to the Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) director for their region and are responsible for the financially sound direction and operation of their medical centers.

VA leadership positions also come with a robust benefits package:

  • Competitive salary and premium-paid medical, vision and dental insurance.
  • A generous retirement that includes Social Security, a federal pension and a 401(k)-type plan with up 5% in employer contributions.
  • Up to 49 days of paid time off per year (26 days of annual leave, 13 days of sick leave and 10 federal holidays).
