Senators Seek Answers to VA Waiting List

KSAL StaffJune 3, 2014

U.S. Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran want more answers about the status of veterans’ care at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Wichita after learning of a secret waiting list of patients.

The two Kansas Republicans said Tuesday that documents faxed to them Friday from the director of the Robert J. Dole Veterans Affairs Medical Center raised additional questions. The director acknowledged that some veterans waited more than 90 days for appointments.

Roberts and Moran also want to know what happened to the veterans on the secret waiting list maintained by the Wichita VA outside the agency’s official records system. The fax said the list had been terminated and gaps in patient care were being addressed.

Roberts and Moran have forwarded the information to the VA’s Office of Inspector General.
