HMS Promotes Employment Of Veterans And Wounded Warriors With Hero Health Hire

HMS, a wholly owned subsidiary of HMS Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: HMSY), announced today that it has joined Hero Health Hire, a coalition of healthcare organizations united with the goal of employing wounded warriors and veterans. Launched in Washington, D.C. at a 2011 industry summit that included the U.S. Secretary of Labor, members of Congress, and representatives of a number of government agencies and the military, Hero Health Hire includes companies, associations and hospitals from across the spectrum of healthcare that collectively employ hundreds of thousands. Each member commits to working to help veterans find and retain jobs in healthcare.

“HMS honors the service of our men and women in uniform,” said Tracy South, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at HMS. “They are the best-trained force in the world. Our partnership with Hero Health Hire will not only provide them with opportunities to apply their skills in the workforce but will also make HMS stronger as we seek to fight fraud, waste and abuse in the healthcare system.”

Each month, tens of thousands of wounded warriors — men and women in our military who have been injured or become ill during service — transition out of the military, only to struggle in the civilian workforce. Many may be interviewing for a job or writing a resume for the first time, unsure of how military skills and experiences might translate to a civilian workplace.

Hero Health Hire unites the healthcare industry with government agencies and the military to eliminate barriers to employment, as well as to develop ways to support veterans and wounded warriors in their transition. Since its inception, Hero Health Hire has recruited additional industry partners representing more than a half million employees with worksites in every U.S. state.

“HMS is excited to join Hero Health Hire to make a difference in the lives of America’s veterans and wounded warriors,” said South of HMS. “Though our service to them can never equal their sacrifice for us, we look forward to a great future together.”
