A high-ranking official with the US Department of Veterans Affairs check-out planned upgrades at the Sioux Falls VA today.
VA Assistant Secretary Tommy Sowers toured the acute care ward where rooms will be remodeled into singles, each with their own bathrooms.
“We have seen a dramatic expansion in the VA footprint, not just in hospitals, but in the community-based outpatient clinics as well. We've seen that here in the Dakotas because the VA's responsibility is to serve those who have served,” Sowers said.
In June, the VA plans to break ground on a new surgical suite that will include four operating rooms.
