Atlanta VA cites improved wait times, care

ATLANTA (AP) — Officials with the Atlanta VA Medical Center are reporting improvements to wait times and care, following a national audit two months ago that identified problems at the facility and prompted further federal review.

The facility's director, Leslie Wiggins, told reporters Friday that newly compiled figures for January through March show veterans are receiving appointments quicker and obtaining better care for conditions such as pneumonia, congestive heart failure and hospital-acquired infections.
