House Committee Holds Hearing on VA Capital Asset Needs

National VFW - 7/17/2017

On Wednesday, the House Committee on Veterans Affairs held a hearing to assess VA’s capital asset needs. Chairman Roe noted that while the hearing itself was to discuss the management of capital assets within VA, the actual importance of the hearing topic fell completely on patient care. Without proper management of money, equipment, facilities –– and everything else that goes into the country’s largest health care agency –– patients will receive less than the highest quality of patient care, which is the top priority for VA. The Chairman also noted that the need to discuss capital asset management is not exclusive to VA, as the private-sector health care industry is also currently going through the same process.
