The VA has the SAIL system that rates each healthcare facility on 25 different quality measures and assigns each facility a star rating.  The star ratings are 1 to 5 star, with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.  The Las Vegas VA is rated 2 star.  Here are the metrics specifically related to employee satisfaction:   1. Best places to work    a. Overall job satisfaction     b. Satisfaction with organization     c. Recommend my organization as a good place to work   2. Registered nurse turnover rate

Compared to other VA facilities, the Las Vegas VA performs below average in all employee satisfaction categories.   Two points are worth mentioning.  One, any individual may have experiences that aren't reflected in the organization's numbers.  Two, Las Vegas hospitals generally rate more poorly than other American hospitals.

SAIL ratings, including those specific to each facility can be found on the VA website.  CMS' Hospital Compare shows ratings of hospitals nationwide but doesn't include VA hospitals.

Mike O'Callaghan Federal Hospital (MOFH) is a  small hospital located on Las Vegas Blvd across from Nellis Air Force Base.  It was originally a joint venture between the Air Force and the VA, but now is primarily Air Force.

You may already know that UMC is owned by Clark County and most employees can participate in Nevada Public Employees Retirement System (PERS).

The State of Nevada operates a (top notch) Veterans' Home in Boulder City and their employees can participate in Nevada PERS.

The State of Nevada operates two psychiatric hospitals in Las Vegas.  Rawson Neal is a psychiatric hospital that is known for taking some of the higher acuity psychiatric patients.  Adjacent to Rawson Neal is the smaller Stein Hospital, a forensic facility for certain psychiatric patients involved in crime.  Employees of these two hospitals participate in Nevada PERS.  

The State of Nevada generally pays below market.
