Sen. Roger Wicker requests improvement plan for Mississippi’s VA medical centers

“I was extremely disappointed to learn that our state’s two VA medical centers again received low ratings,” Wicker said.

The Veterans Administration’s 2017 Hospital Star Rating gave the G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery VA Medical Center in Jackson two stars out of five. The Gulf Coast VA Medical Center in Biloxi received one star.

“I wrote the VA Secretary David Shullkin to ask for his prompt action to improve the Jackson and Biloxi hospitals, because Mississippi veterans deserve better than a two star and a one star medical center,” Wicker said in the video uploaded to Youtube Thursday.
