I have had the pleasure of working with the VEMA providers for ten years as a Nurse Manager, ED Director and now Senior Director at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital. We have grown as a team over the last decade. We share a vision for our department based on the core values of trust and team work. The VEMA providers are committed to the ED team and our patients. They are respectful of their nurse colleagues, and create a safe environment for all nurses to learn and grow professionally. The VEMA leadership team is committed quality outcomes. We continuously collaborate to remain current in our clinical practice, and obtain top decile quality, safety and satisfaction outcomes for our patients. I am so grateful to have the VEMA providers as partners in this complex and ever-changing work environment.
