In their words: VHS residents share life stories for Skilled Nursing Care Week
It’s National Skilled Nursing Care Week (May 14-20)! We are spotlighting some of our VHS Residents at Virginia Health Services’ seven nursing and rehabilitation centers.
Virginia Health Services has been locally owned and operated for nearly 60 years. VHS, headquartered in Newport News, Virginia, specializes in senior living and healthcare. We have a team of nearly 1,200 at our locations in Newport News, Hampton, York County, Gloucester and Kilmarnock.
Our team includes nursing staff, administration, dietary, housekeeping, environmental services, maintenance, social work, finance and accounting, and therapy (physical, occupational and speech).
Our full- and part-time positions are eligible for benefits including health and dental insurance, and paid leave. Virginia Health Services also offers a 401K retirement plan to eligible employees.
Virginia Health Services is committed to investing in its team members.
A training center – the Employment, Enrichment and Education (EEE) Center, located in Port Warwick in Newport News – offers team member training and programs. The education team also hosts in services at VHS facilities.
Virginia Health Services has an earn-as-you-learn apprenticeship program that provides paid training for Care Assistants to become Nurse Aides, then covers the cost of the certification exam to qualify as a CNA. The program is expanding to include paid apprenticeships for dietary and housekeeping, and eventually the LPN program.
Assistance is available to pursue nursing education, and resources such as scholarships are communicated to team members frequently.
Our team members are our priority and the foundation of Virginia Health Services’ success. We value hard work and reward it. Our Director of Team Engagement and recreational staff plan events and celebrate our team members throughout the year.
