This book describes how the VHA, tasked with a challenging patient population, does a better job than private sector institutions offering primary and geriatric care, mental health and home care services, and support for patients nearing the end of life.

Demystifying the culture and mind-set of today's veterans, this book presents the business case for hiring veterans, shows how to manage the hiring process, and provides a clear roadmap to navigate the path from veteran-friendly to veteran-ready.
