Director statement regarding reporting for duty:
All VAPORHCS clinics and services are currently operating during normal hours. 

Please note, due to the vital nature of hospital service, it is imperative that VHAPORHCS be able to continue to offer medical care in spite of severe weather or other conditions.  As such, when these conditions occur, employees are asked to make a reasonable effort to report for their scheduled tour of duty every day.  Please ask your supervisor if you have any questions.

Thank you.
