Support all your staff 

NYSVMS provides a comprehensive assistance program for all our veterinarian members for free. You can extend that to all the staff in your hospital for a total of $300 per year per hospital. Or you can provide an even higher level of coverage that provides 5 counseling sessions a year for each employee for $450 per year per hospital.

This NYSVMS member price is far more economical than most employee assistance programs because the cost of providing employee assistance to small companies is usually relatively high. However by working together with CorpCare as an association we can together access top quality support at affordable rates.
