On 04 June 2024, VSHA received notification from the Vermont Department of Health of recognition in their efforts to provide a healthy environment for their employees. Please see the attached letter here.

Following many months of improvements, staff from VSHA which formed their Wellness Committee, submitted the application in April 2024. Results were immediate, though it was not known until June what those results meant. VSHA is honored to receive this award and will uphold the standards on which it is set. The staff at VSHA will continue to strive for excellence, support our employees’ wellbeing, and improve their work environments.
