Senator Hassan Statement on Reports About Manchester VA Medical Center

WASHINGTON - Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement on allegations of unacceptable practices and quality of care at the Manchester VA Medical Center: 

"The poor conditions and quality of care alleged by whistle-blowers at the Manchester VA are completely unacceptable. The VA must immediately launch a full-scale investigation to get answers about these reports of outrageous practices and administrative indifference, including why the hospital recently received such high marks from the VA for its quality of service despite serious problems at the facility. 

"Veterans across New Hampshire and America have demonstrated a selfless commitment to keeping our nation safe, secure and, free, and we must ensure that every one of our veterans receives the care that they need and have earned. I will continue to work with members of both parties to hold the VA accountable for its unacceptable practices."
