Kind meets with new director of Tomah VA

TOMAH - U.S. Rep. Ron Kind recently visited the Tomah VA Medical Center to meet with Victoria Brahm, new Acting Director, and receive an update on the implementation of policies to fix the problems at the facility.

“I look forward to working with Acting Director Brahm, as she continues the work John Rohrer started, to implement meaningful changes at the Tomah VA.  While Tomah VA has taken steps to implement needed changes there is still work to be done. We owe it to our veterans to ensure they are receiving the care they earned and deserve,” Rep. Kind stated.

Rep. Kind brought together the entire Wisconsin delegation to sponsor his bill, the Inspectors General Transparency Act of 2015, which will ensure greater transparency and oversight into the office of inspector general. He has also been actively engaged in ensuring that the Tomah VA is implementing policies that will fix the problems that occurred and ensure our veterans receive the care and treatment that they deserve. 

Also just recently, he joined fellow Wisconsin Congressman
Reid Ribble to introduce the Veterans Access to Care Act, which would fix recruitment problems the VA is having in Tomah, Wausau, Wisconsin Rapids, and other parts of the state.
