Kind calls for commission to improve care delivery at VA hospitals

Posted:
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW)  Congressman Ron Kind is calling for the creation of a blue ribbon commission to improve care delivery at the Department of Veteran's Affairs.

That commission would also investigate allegations that some VA personnel covered up long wait times for veterans seeking care.

Kind says there are no reports of delays in care at VA Medical Centers in Wisconsin.  But last week, Kind voted to support the Department of Veteran's Affairs Management Accountability Act.  That act is designed to help ensure that the VA serves veterans in the most effective and efficient way.
