Veteran-Friendly Employer

We greatly value the work ethic, discipline and commitment to teamwork that veterans bring. Led by a President/CEO who is a veteran himself, Samaritan Health Services became the first health system on the West Coast to sign a contract with the Army Partnership for Youth Success program (PaYS). PaYS connects military personnel with potential job openings just before their enlistment ends.

Samaritan’s core values are excellence, respect, service, integrity, stewardship, compassion and leadership. Veterans embody these same standards while serving our country and can use their military skills and training to contribute to our mission of enhancing community and individual health in our region.

Additionally, Samaritan recognizes that veterans may face challenges while transitioning back into a civilian workplace. To help with this, we provide training and support during that transition.  

Meet some of our veterans, front row: Christina Myers, Army Reserve; Larry Mullins, Marine Corps; Sheila Sullivan, Navy. Back row: Ben Watts, Army; David Jones, Air Force; Scott Balzer, Army.
