Last week, more than 30 leaders representing local community providers, veterans service organizations, Phoenix VA representatives, and other stakeholders convened to coordinate care for veterans still waiting for treatment at the Phoenix VA. Prior to today's meeting Congresswoman Sinema released the following statement: "I'm proud that several steps we called for to address the failures at the Phoenix VA are being implemented and that we have brought decision makers from community providers and veteran service organizations to the table to take immediate action to serve our veterans. "We're working to broaden the VA's use of existing and new community partnerships, a step essential to both reforming the VA system and providing immediate care to veterans failed by the Phoenix VA. I will continue to work until our veterans have access to both short-term and long-term care, and all Arizona veterans receive the care and benefits they have earned."
