Congressman French Hill Statement on VA Announcing Permanent CAVHS Director

WASHINGTON Today, following the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) announcement that Margie A. Scott, M.D., will be the new permanent Director of the Central Arkansas Veterans Health Care System (CAVHS), Congressman French Hill (AR-02) released the below statement:

“In the fifteen months I have been in Congress, our local VA healthcare system has seen temporary director after temporary director, all the while, problem after problem after problem has persisted. The first step towards VA regaining the trust of the veteran and the taxpayer is through permanent leadership that puts in place a long-term plan to provide the very best care for our veterans. While the decision took entirely too long, I am glad we now have a director to hold accountable and our local veterans have a little more certainty with respect to the care they have earned and deserve.”
