Stop Harassment Now!

We want to ensure that our facility is safe, welcoming and comfortable for Veterans, employees, volunteers and visitors alike.

Please join us and VA facilities across the nation in stopping harassment – especially sexual harassment; let's all pledge to "Stand Up to Stop Harassment Now!"

This effort is a national priority for the Veterans Health Administration. We want everyone to feel empowered to speak up and intervene if you witness acts of harassment, and please report any harassment:
- Veterans or visitors can contact the Patient Advocate Office, located in the main hospital building, 1st floor, room 140 (across from Starbucks), Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., or by telephone at 401-457-3093. They may also contact the VA Police at 401-273-7100 ext. 3008.
- Women Veterans can contact the Women Veterans Call Center at 855-VA-Women (855-829-6636) to report harassment, or call Tonya Maselli McConnell, the PVAMC Women Veterans Program Manager, at 401-273-7100 ext. 6191.
- Employees can contact the Providence VAMC Harassment Prevention Program through Joe Sousa, PVAMC Equal Employment Opportunity Program Manager, at 401-273-7100 ext. 2153, Tonya Maselli McConnell at ext. 6191, the VA Police at ext. 3008, or make an entry in the Disruptive Behavior Reporting System.

Thank you for helping us in take a stand to stop harassment at the Providence VAMC and all of our clinics. If even one person feels uncomfortable coming to our facilities, we fail both in our mission to provide the exceptional care Veterans have earned and as an employer of choice in the community.
