Acting Veterans Affairs Secretary Sloan Gibson on Thursday admitted that 18 veterans died while waiting to receive care at an agency hospital in Arizona.
Gibson said the department confirmed the deaths after a VA inspector general report found that 1,700 veterans had been left off an official patient waiting list, The Arizona Republic reported.
Gibson said the agency would have the full results of the nationwide audit next week. He said the department would work to release “complete” patient wait-time data for each VA facility across the country.
