Veterans at MaineGeneral

MaineGeneral honors and takes care of its employees who are veterans and serving with the Guard and Reserves.

MaineGeneral participates in the Hire-A-Vet campaign, with the goal of hiring veterans to serve in our health system because of the work ethic, skill-set and pride veterans have in a job well done. Veterans enhance our Excellence at Work and elevates this culture of always giving your best.

We support our veterans and Guard and Reserve members as you support the valuable work of providing the best care and service to patients, families, staff and communities.


Recognized with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Pro Patria Award and with managers having received the ESGR Patriot Award, MaineGeneral has demonstrated a commitment to providing jobs and benefits for employees who are Guard and Reserve members.

These include:

  • Preserving an employee's job for Guard and Reserve service and training;
  • Maintaining employee benefits during deployment; and
  • Other support to ensure members have the flexibility to fulfill their Guard and Reserve duties.

We work hard to recruit and retain Guard and Reserve members and provide them with needed support to do great things for the health system, for their community and for the nation.

"I was welcomed with open arms, and from day one as a Reservist I have received nothing but support. I have to travel for my drill weekends, as my Army unit is in D.C., and it has not once been an issue with MGH. This past spring I was hit with very unexpected news as the Army called me up involuntarily for a deployment overseas. MaineGeneral and my team were more than supportive. I have never felt so much warmth and appreciation than I did from my team before I left." -Sara Veilleaux, PHR, CW2, AG, BDE S-1, Task Force Iron Castle, 926 Theater Engineer Brigade; Human Resources Specialist at MaineGeneral
