What Makes Us Different
In addition to having the requisite licensing to practice their profession, every one of our social workers, psychologists, psychiatrist and counselors will be equipped with specific training essential to the effective treatment of our service men and women; each will receive a minimum of 80 hours training in military culture and veteran-specific care / issues.
Our team understands that providing effective care for our veterans goes beyond the individual, and must include ample provisions for their families, as well. We fully realize the incredible burden undertaken by the spouses and children of service men and women, and that complete healing is only possible by focusing on the backbone of a soldier’s life – the people he or she calls home.
This experience has also taught us that the camaraderie among veterans is an equally powerful and therapeutic force. Their inherent desire to assist one another is ever-present; their need to fulfill a mission, undeniable. Veteran Health Services plans to emphasize these traits with peer-to-peer support programs and related offerings.
Veterans and their families will be offered access to care regardless of the veteran’s level of service connection, and without the restrictions associated with adherence to a third party’s traditional concept of “medical necessity” or their ability to pay.
Veteran Health Services will also hire veterans – and their families – wherever and whenever possible. The infinite talents and skill sets comprising this vast community – including mental and behavioral health training – will continue to strengthen our clinical team and veteran-specific offerings.
The high concentration of veteran clinicians, our peer support programs and spacious and well-appointed “Landing Zone” will foster and promote the unique bond among fellow veterans, thus making Veteran Health Services, Inc. a place they want to be, while spreading the word about Veteran Health Services, Inc. throughout the veteran community.
Veteran Health Services, Inc. is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is not affiliated in any way with the U.S. Military or Veteran Administration (VA). This unique distinction fosters a sense of sanctuary and refuge for veterans seeking our care while still struggling with concerns about confidentiality, promotion, and security clearance.
The negative perception that some veterans experience can be a major barrier to their seeking and/or benefiting from available services. Thus, Veteran Health Services, Inc’s’ unique independent structure helps to alleviate those concerns, open therapeutic channels of dialogue and promote effective healing.
Embracing technology has become increasingly essential for organizations that help veterans. The young men and women returning home from tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world have grown up in an era of technological advancement, and that, along with their battlefield experiences, is the world they understand.
At Veteran Health Services, multiple processes, from scheduling to prescription refills, will continue to be refined, strengthened, and streamlined thanks to advances in technology, including 24-hour live access to staff members via telehealth, as well as the implementation of an Electronic Health Records (EHR) that maximizes efficiency and minimizes errors.
Plans are also in place for the use of a proprietary mobile application designed to empower patients with immediate access to their personal treatment plans. The innovation will also provide an invaluable bird’s eye view of a veteran’s day-to-day life to the providers entrusted with their care, in an effort to improve outcomes and facilitate timelier healing.
