Project VEHTS (Versatile Employment of Health-Trained Servicemen). First Interim Report.
Nathan (Robert R.) Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
Project VEHTS (Versatile Employment of Health Trained Servicemen) is demonstrating how civilian hospitals can employ and use more effectively the thousands of medically-trained servicemen who are released each year by the Armed Forces. A system of recruitment and placement of veterans at Cook County Hospital, Chicago, was designed and implemented. A literature and program search was conducted; an annotated bibliography is presented as an appendix to the report. Project VEHTS has identified two major problems that civilian hospitals have in recruiting and placing veterans. The first arises out of the characteristics of military men, particularly their nontraditional and nonaccredited training and experience, and their geographic dispersion. The second develops out of organizational and management characteristics of civilian hospitals, especially from their personnel systems which result in diffused hiring authority and inefficient use of veteran manpower.
