Debunking Rumors at Mann-Grandstaff VA

You may have heard the rumors floating around that services offered at Mann-Grandstaff are going to be reduced or eliminated. I want to set the record straight: these rumors are false. There are no immediate plans to reduce inpatient services at the facility. To make this clear, I sat down with KHQ yesterday to get this message out to Eastern Washington veterans who depend on Mann-Grandstaff and are afraid their access to health care is in jeopardy.

Additionally, I sent a letter to Spokane VA leadership this morning calling for more transparency surrounding this issue. I also emphasized the serious need for the VA to take immediate action to mitigate the problems plaguing the electronic health record system. It must be a top priority of the VA to make sure Eastern Washington veterans receive the gold standard of care they’ve earned, and I’m committed to making sure Mann-Grandstaff plays a critical role in that.

The bottom line is that while there are no immediate plans to reduce inpatient services, the VA has a transparency problem that needs to be fixed. Our veterans deserve better than confusion and uncertainty, and I’m going to make sure they get it.
