Many medical professionals are struggling to find purpose and joy at home and in their workplaces.

Those on the frontlines of America’s healthcare system have survived medical school and residency, logged countless hours caring for patients, and navigated a global pandemic. Medical professionals are tough – but according to the American Medical Association, the overall burnout rate among physicians is at an all-time high of 63 percent. Burnout is also increasing for PAs, nurses, and many other clinicians in the U.S.

SafeHaven’s unique and growing suite of services is specifically designed for and by medical professionals. Now, those caring for others can tap into support services that offer flexible hours and virtual options to accommodate their busy schedules. Best of all, these services can be leveraged by healthcare workers as well as their family members.

Burnout is no longer something clinicians have to suffer through alone – those participating in SafeHaven are identifying solutions, healing injuries, and rediscovering joy and purpose in their career.

Our History

The MSV Connection

SafeHaven was founded by the Medical Society of Virginia (MSV) after recognizing a greater need to provide physicians and PAs the support they need to stay well and prevent burnout.

In 2020, MSV introduced new legislation to Virginia’s General Assembly to help support physicians and PAs. In response, on March 8, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam signed into effect HB115 (Hope) and SB120 (Barker), providing for the creation of the SafeHaven program. The program was later expanded to include nurses and pharmacists; as well as medical, nursing, PA, and pharmacy students.
