VETERANS-HEALTH-KENTUCKY
2 Veterans Affairs clinics in Kentucky tabbed for 2nd look, main facilities meet expectations

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 9, 2014 2:56 PM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Two Veterans Administration clinics in Kentucky are being considered for a second look, but overall the agency has a better track record of seeing veterans than facilities across the country.

The clinics at Fort Knox, which is home to an Army post, and Dupont Circle in Louisville, were marked in an audit released Monday for a closer examination of their practices.

The audit of 731 VA hospitals and large outpatient clinics around the country found that a 14-day goal for seeing first-time patients was unattainable given the growing demand among veterans for health care and poor planning. The VA has since abandoned that goal.

Auditors found the VA hospital in Louisville scheduled 98 percent of all appointments within 30 days, while the facility in Lexington had a 97 percent rate.
