EGA was founded as a consulting business in 2012 and leadership quickly saw an opportunity to support fellow Veterans directly through providing healthcare staffing. Founded and led by a former Marine and Naval Officer, the owner wanted to help provide better care for other veterans, by way of providing quality talent to the VA.
Early on his father was a veteran and in and out of the VA healthcare system, so he had an appreciation for it since then, and that’s what got him into this business. Over time, he worked for a healthcare staffing firm more specifically government divisions/working with VA hospitals. He worked with other small businesses working with the government and mentored them through the process. He quickly realized many companies didn’t want to work with the VA because of the complicated process, and he saw a need out there, especially for the veterans needing quality care.
Working with the government is cumbersome but it’s really like a puzzle and putting the pieces together. He saw that as an opportunity to connect the dots, and he wanted to be an integrator and didn’t plan on doing this himself, but he saw other companies not willing to put the time in to do the right thing, they just wanted the quick contract award. He saw the need to find the right people to solve the VAs core issues. That’s why he started this and to figure that out to keep that mission going. There is a shortage of resources out there for the VA and wanted to able to help them long-term. It’s been very rewarding.Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, New York
