The Veterans Affairs Southern Nevada Healthcare System (VASNHS) is a highly complex health care system with a new, one-million square foot comprehensive Medical Center; four Primary Care Clinics; a Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in Pahrump/Nye County; a Commission for Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) accredited Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Recovery Center; an Education Learning Center; a Community Resource and Referral Center for homeless and at-risk Veterans; two additional administrative buildings; an off-site warehouse; and a Joint Venture with the Department of Defense at the Mike O'Callaghan Federal Medical Center. Opening the new medical center is in progress as VASNHS is planning for 90 inpatient beds, a hybrid operating room, an emergency department, and a separate 120-bed Community Living Center/skilled nursing home care facility. Policies, procedures, scopes of service, and standard operating procedures are being developed to address the new 24/7 operation.
Planning is also underway for expansion of the Pahrump CBOC, and providing specialty care for Veterans from the St. George, Utah CBOC. Staffing in FY12 was approximately 1,600 FTE with over 800 new staff hired to meet the demands of the new medical center. Current staffing is approximately 1,900 FTE. The dynamic growth of Southern Nevada and rapid expansion of VA health care services in the Clark County/Southern Nevada area has created numerous logistic, administrative, and operational issues that have also contributed to one of the largest fee basis/non-VA care budgets in the country. The health care system remains highly complex due to the number of sites, level of programs, and need for successful operational planning to successfully develop and open inpatient services.
Southern Nevada HCS maintains affiliations with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Reno; College of Southern Nevada, Touro University School of Nursing, and a number of other schools for dental, optometry, pharmacy, audiology, and nutrition residents.
VA structures its SES positions into pay bands. This is a pay band 2 position and the salary range is $119,554-$173,600. Exceptions to the salary cap may be considered in certain circumstances.
