Manchin Visits Clarksburg VA Medical Center

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) today visited the Clarksburg VA Medical Center to tour the facilities and meet with patients, veterans, staff and members of the hospital’s leadership.

“I enjoyed visiting the Clarksburg VA this morning and was very pleased to see the high quality of care, the cleanliness of the facilities and the competent health services available to our veterans,” Senator Manchin said. “As I toured the medical center and met with many patients, veterans and staff members, I received overwhelmingly positive feedback. The reports from the national VA audit that were recently released did not match the reports I gathered firsthand today. I plan to look into how the audit report was conducted and to discuss these issues with the new VA Secretary nominee, Bob McDonald. I thank our Clarksburg VA Director, Beth Brown, and the entire staff for their hospitality and for the great work they do every day to take care of our veterans.”
