VA: Staffing shortage forces long wait times

June 11, 2014

Michael Kiefer, WTVAHS director, addressed the media in the wake of a report showing the system, headquartered in Big Spring, fared poorly in an audit which studied a variety of factors, including how long new and established patients had to wait for appointments.
