Bilirakis Responds to VA OIG Report on Tampa Medical Center

OIG Report

Congressman Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) released the following statement regarding the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General report on patient scheduling issues at VA Medical Center in Tampa:

“The egregious failures by the VA identified in this report prove that the trend of inefficiency and error within the VA remains unaddressed. To say I’m disappointed would be an understatement. Despite additional resources, funding, and authorities, the VA continuously fails to adequately care for our Veterans. The Veterans in my community face excessive wait times and continue to express their outrage and disappointment with the VA. My priorities remain – to improve the VA and ensure that our true American heroes receive the care and support they have earned and deserve. We must get this done for our Veterans.”
