Video - Learning from the Past - Positioning for the Future

A Veteran receives a vaccine from a health care worker
The last year has been about one VA team. It was life and death and it felt like it. The stress, fear and sadness brought on by the pandemic led to extraordinary kindness, hope and commitment.

Throughout the VA Salt Lake City Healthcare System, everyone worked tirelessly to care for our Veteran population as the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in the United States.

We took unprecedented measures to reduce exposure and safeguard our health care workers, the Veterans we serve, and their family members. Our ability to quickly pivot and direct maximum effort to control the spread of the coronavirus – and then begin vaccinating those in our care – played a crucial role in protecting our Veteran community.

This 60-second video shares a few of our professional and personal struggles, our ability to make adjustments to meet the threat head-on, and our vision for the future of Veterans health care.
