Walorski Meets with Local VA Leadership
Discusses Veterans Care Issues with Officials Overseeing Indiana VA Facilities, Including Mishawaka VA Clinic
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today met with top officials from Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities in Indiana to discuss ways to boost staffing at the Mishawaka VA clinic and improve services and care for Hoosier veterans.
“My top priority is always to make sure Hoosier veterans get the timely, quality care they earned,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “I asked the leaders of our local VA facilities to update me on efforts to restore a culture of accountability and ensure the VA works for all our veterans. We had a productive discussion, and I look forward to continuing to work together to keep our nation’s promise to the men and women who served in uniform.”
Walorski met with Robert McDivitt, Director of Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) 10; Michael Hershman, Director of VA Northern Indiana Health Care System (VANIHCS); and Dr. J. Brian Hancock, Director of the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis.
VANICHS serves veterans in northern Indiana, including at the Fort Wayne Campus, Marion Campus, and recently-opened St. Joseph County VA Health Care Center in Mishawaka. VISN 10 encompasses most of Indiana as well as Michigan and Ohio.
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
