VA holds town hall meeting in Albany

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Carl Vinson VA Medical Center will host a town hall meeting for veterans, their families, and other stakeholders today at 11:30 a.m. at American Legion Post 30 to hear feedback on how the medical center can better meet veterans' needs.

According to Dublin VA communications director Dr. Frank G. Jordan Jr., the medical center holds town hall meetings for its stakeholders every quarter in order to ensure that they have a regular forum for making their opinions known.

"These meetings help us to gauge how well we are doing and where we can improve. Without question, getting feedback straight from our stakeholders is the best way to learn what we are doing well and how we can improve," Jordan said.

The town hall meeting is one of many VA holds around the country to provide local veterans an open forum for voicing their opinions and for VA officials to hear directly from beneficiaries as a step toward improvement and to maintain trust among veterans and VA. It also provides VA officials a chance to learn what stakeholders want to see improved as well as what is working well.

The Dublin VA town hall meeting will be hosted by medical center director Maryalice Morro and will include VA staff who will answer questions veterans and other stakeholders have about programs and services. Tables will be set up with information on VA and medical center programs.

The Carl Vinson VA Medical Center is one of 153 around the country whose focus is meeting the healthcare needs of veterans.

The town hall meeting will be at American Legion Post 30, 2916 Gillionville Road, Albany. The meeting is open to all interested in veterans' needs and parking will be available.
