The work environment in the Hopkinsville VA CBOC was fantastic. Everyone worked as a team. The director was great to her employees. She treated everyone fairly. She truly cared about the employees and listened to their needs and concerns. The entire team was dedicated to serving the veterans.
Most of the veterans always seemed to enjoy coming for their appointments to the clinic.
Sterling Medical pays generous salaries to the employees- at least for Nurse Practitioners.
There were ample paid days/ holidays off.
The only cons were:
1- the high cost for insurance and
2-requirement to give 45 day notice for days off. I think this requirement was by VA and since sterling is contract clinic-it was therefore required by Sterling of the employees there.
I LOVED working at this clinic! The only reason I left was that I ws driving 70 miles round trip daily, and found a job closer to my home. But in afterthought, I have questioned whether the change was a good one. I miss the Hopkinsville team and also miss serving the veterans there.
