VA Secretary Bob McDonald joined C-SPAN’s Pedro Echevarria this morning on Washington Journal to discuss VA’s ongoing transformation efforts and the growing number of Veterans seeking VA care.
“We have added capacity,” McDonald explained. “We’ve added 1200 new doctors, 2300 new nurses. We’ve expanded clinical hours. We’ve done more tele-health, providing care in their homes oftentimes. We’ve done a lot of things to expand care.”
“More Veterans are coming to us for care,” McDonald said.
During the program, McDonald took questions from Veterans, family members and active duty Servicemembers.
