KSLA News 12 Editorial: June 16th-V.A. Health Care Viewer Comments

Reaction this week to my editorial on health care concerns at V.A. hospitals. I said because of recent issues, all V.A. hospitals should be evaluated: their practices, patient feedback and patient outcomes. 


Overton Brooks is a big V.A. hospital serving the ArkLaTex.

In response to that Jack, a Vietnam veteran wrote: "I am currently receiving care from the Overton Brooks V.A. Medical Center in Shreveport and am very proud of the staff of this hospital. I have always received quality care and timely appointments by hard working, but very dedicated personnel.

And a retired air force veteran wrote: "I have used this facility for at least 15 years and have not confronted any of these difficulties being made so news worthy. I would love to hear a positive comment coming from the news media."

What's your experience been at Overton Brooks?  

I'd like to know.  

I'm James Smith.

    "Full disclosure and complete transparency to the people they serve should be demanded of and delivered," says Joe Sciortino, KSLA News 12 vice president and general manager"Full disclosure and complete transparency to the people they serve should be demanded of and delivered," says Joe Sciortino, KSLA News 12 vice president and general manager

    State Police Supt. Col. Mike Edmonson needs to address this inexcusable behavior directly and restore the public's confidence. He should be fully transparent in his investigation into the matter and should invite an outside entity to look into the matter.
