Support for the VA healthcare system

The VA hospital has always been special to me. My very first clinical rotation as a medical student was inpatient wards at the Jamaica Plain VA Hospital in Boston. Today, I still do occasional shifts in the VA emergency room, and see first hand the work and effort that is put in every day caring for our veterans, despite serious shortages in money and personnel. Today’s Boston Globe published a story about this, and talks about the many achievements of the Boston VA Healthcare system, despite operating in today’s difficult medical environment.
