Dear Colleague,  

Welcome to VA Central Iowa Health Care System! VA has an important mission in fulfilling 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 American’s Veterans.  You are an important addition to our team as we continue to serve Central Iowa Veterans by providing them proactive, patient drive health care.   Our staff of almost 1500 proudly serves approximately 36,000 Veterans from 42 counties in Central Iowa and Northern Missouri.

As you learn your new role, you will discover the culture of the VA. You will witness the incredible bond Veterans have with each other and with the staff.  You will observe dedication from the entire Central Iowa workforce.  From our patient care teams to support staff to volunteers, each member of our team continually goes above and beyond to ensure positive patient experiences. 

Our team has been working hard to connect you with important information before your first day. We encourage you to spend time reading through these and the resources provided to you in new employee orientation.  To better assist you and welcome you to our team, we will also match you up with a “JumpStart” Coach who can answer questions and connect you to resources and other team members.                                                                                                                                                       

I look forward to meeting you at New Employee Orientation and to watch your career grow with us. Once again, welcome to the team!
