Our Commitment To Veterans


Steve Schliesman

General Manager, Military & Veterans Health

“I am extremely proud of our veteran efforts and programs—they begin with our focused hiring process; are shown in the veteran employment commitments we have made and honor in our programs; and are reflected in our employee benefits. Cognosante recognizes the values engrained through military service and maintains the same expectation in all employees – those of duty, honor, commitment, and integrity.”

Meet our Veterans Who Continue to Serve

Being in the Virginia Army National Guard allows me to serve my country part-time and continue to enjoy a career in health IT. As a Veteran Recruiting Liaison at Cognosante, I have found a dually rewarding opportunity to help transitioning Veterans find a meaningful job and to become part of a higher purpose to transform our country’s healthcare system.

Mission-orientation learned in the military has helped me in my role at Cognosante. I mention the intangibles [when engaging with teammates]…so that they have a vision and understand that everything we do serves a greater purpose.

Cognosante has a wide range of talent and experience that offers tremendous value to the state governments we serve. I see excellent results delivered to our customers, and they really appreciate the improvements we make… Cognosante is by far, my favorite place to earn a living.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help and don’t give up, would be my advice for Veterans transitioning into civilian life…Cognosante’s Employee Assistance Program has also been a tremendous source of assistance [for me].
