McMorris Rodgers on VA Announcement to Return to 24-Hour Urgent Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 18, 2018) – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after the Mann-Grandstaff Spokane VA Medical Center announced plans to return to 24-hour urgent care in the near future.

“Earlier this year, I sat down with Secretary Shulkin and Chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee Dr. Phil Roe, and I identified returning Mann-Grandstaff to 24-hour urgent care as an action item for veterans in Eastern Washington,” said McMorris Rodgers. “I’m so pleased to see the VA making this happen at my request, and I’m committed to remaining a partner along the way. Our veterans should have somewhere to go at all hours of the day. They earned and deserve it.”

NOTE: In November, during a visit with House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Phil Roe (R-TN), McMorris Rodgers and Roe established four actions items for the Spokane VA, one of which was to restore 24-hour urgent care. You can read more about that visit here. The Congresswoman will continue having productive conversations with the Spokane VA, the House VA Committee, and others at the Department to continue working on these other action items.
