Today, Wyoming Medical Center and representatives of the U.S. Army Recruiting Command signed an agreement to provide priority hiring status to qualified soldiers participating in the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program. Wyoming Medical Center is the first healthcare provider in Wyoming to sign on as a partner.

PaYS is a strategic partnership program between the Army and a cross section of U.S. corporations and public sector agencies designed to help the Army attract, train and deploy talented young people who want to serve their country, but also want to pursue their careers once their service is complete.

“Wyoming Medical Center has a long history of supporting the military and veterans. In our continuous commitment to improve our support of the military, we are very pleased with the opportunity to establish a strategic partnership with the U.S. Army via The Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program,” said Vickie Diamond, president and CEO of Wyoming Medical Center.

“The U.S. Army is excited to add Wyoming Medical Center to its invaluable team of corporate/government agencies in the Partnership for Youth Success program,” Yamada said. “It is very fulfilling to have such partnerships that provide this service to our recruiters to offer applicants quality employment opportunities during and after their Army service.”

Under terms of the agreement, enlistees interested in gaining specific job qualifications will receive that training while in the U.S. Army.  Recruits will sign a statement of intent to work for Wyoming Medical Center upon completion of their term of service or completion of their military training.  As they near the end of their enlistments, the soldiers will have the opportunity to interview with Wyoming Medical Center. Hospital jobs will be available in the Army’s PaYS database soon.

“This partnership will not only create avenues for men and women to find gainful employment after their service to their country, it will allow Wyoming Medical Center to build a pipeline of qualified candidates for our organization, thus enabling us to continuously improve the care we provide our community,” Diamond said.

The Army now has more than 500 partner corporations and public sector agencies across the nation, including General Motors, AT&T, Hewlett-Packard Company, JP Morgan-Chase, Wells Fargo, Amazon.com, Caterpillar; Lockheed Martin, Raytheon Company, Schneider National, Inc., Union Pacific Railroad Company; Johnson Controls, Facebook, Inc. and Cloud.
