Ed­i­to­rial of­fers bal­anced look at VA health­care story

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

As a vet­eran and re­tired Army Med­i­cal Depart­ment leader, I com­mend Mod­ern Health­care for the May 26 ed­i­to­rial “Be­yond the the­atrics of the VA scan­dal,” p. 24). It does a good job bal­anc­ing the story of high-qual­ity VA health­care with the frus­tra­tion of an ever-in­creas­ing and ag­ing el­i­gi­ble ben­e­fi­ciary pop­u­la­tion. There will be much more to learn, re­gret and dis­cuss as more in­for­ma­tion is gleaned and re­leased. My wish is that those dis­cus­sions are as lev­el­headed as this ed­i­to­rial.
