Being of service

We put Veterans at the center of all we do. For many employees, this is a top reason for choosing a VA career. 


You’ll begin every day with a fresh commitment to making life better for the more than 9 million brave men and women who risked so much to protect our country and who count on VA for quality health care. 

We live by 5 core values that remind us of our mission to serve those who served and help foster a supportive, innovative work culture. These ICARE values of integrity, commitment, advocacy, respect, and excellence keep us inspired and focused on doing our best for Veterans and their families every day. 

We believe it’s up to all of us to make sure Veterans can enjoy the health and happiness they deserve. 

If you want to make an impact on your community, on the world around you, the VA is the place to be. Not only is it the place to be, it’s a place that needs you.
