385 Vets on Wichita Waiting List

KSAL StaffJune 4, 2014

An official with the Wichita Veterans Affairs medical center says 385 veterans were on an unauthorized list of those waiting for care for more than 90 days.

An official with the Robert J. Dole Veterans Affairs Medical Center told The Associated Press Wednesday the lists were created by staff that lacked training and understanding of VA procedures.

Executive secretary Diane Henderson says the 385 veterans did not include nine others who waited more than 90 days for appointments.

The list was similar to one maintained by a VA campus in Arizona that included 1,700 veterans waiting for appointments for more than 90 days.

It is not clear from the Wichita hospital’s responses what the criteria was for veterans to be placed on the lists or how long it was maintained.
