The Veterans Health Administration is the largest employer of social workers in the nation.  VA Illiana Health Care System (VAIHCS) employs over 80 MSW social workers and we continue to grow, each day it seems. The main medical center is located in Danville, IL with community based outpatient clinics in Mattoon, Decatur, Springfield, Peoria and Bloomington. Inpatient and outpatient services are available at the main facility, with social workers at all locations. Social workers at VAIHCS have great upward mobility. Salary is dependent upon qualification standards and experience. We have great benefits, including health, dental and optical insurance, retirement pension, thrift savings plan, life insurance and so much more. Supervision is provided for clinical licensure. CEU’s are offered through many different avenues within the organization.
