VA wants to close old, little-used hospitals, clinics

AMSUS SmartBrief | Feb 18, 2015

The Department of Veterans Affairs wants to close half-occupied and unused hospitals and clinics, but getting congressional support might be tricky. There are 336 buildings owned by the VA across the country that are aging, sparsely occupied or completely empty, resulting in more than $24 million a year in maintenance costs. "It's time to close the VA's old substandard and underutilized infrastructure," VA Secretary Robert McDonald said. Military Times (02/17)
