Hill to VA Sec: Give Arkansas Veterans Certainty

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman French Hill (AR-02) sent a letter to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Robert A. McDonald urging him to find a permanent Medical Center Director for the Central Arkansas Veterans Health System (CAVHS). After sending the letter, Congressman Hill released the following statement:

“Improving services for veterans has been a major focus for Congress and the Administration. Considerable resources have been spent to ensure higher quality of healthcare and better access to that care. However, when VA healthcare networks are operating without permanent leadership, veterans begin to lose trust in the system and recent bipartisan reforms are in vain. I urge the Secretary to appoint a permanent director of the Central Arkansas Veterans Health System and give Arkansas’s veterans greater certainty in their healthcare.”
