Edward J. Reade Jr. , M.D., an emergency physician, talks about the satisfactions of moving to practice in a  VA Medical Center in Richmond, Va., after practicing 37 years in other hospitals.

“We all know, whether we’re talking about a renovation or working under a new ED director, that change is not painless. But, pain has its benefits, too.
