VA's Data Questioned at First Hearing on Possible Hot Springs Hospital Closure

The first pubic hearing held by the VA on the possible closure of the hospital in Hot Springs happened on Monday. According to the Rapid City Journal article, attendees voiced an overwhelming concern that the VA office was using outdated, unsubstantiated data in its Environmental Impact Statement that had chosen closing the hospital and relocating its services to Rapid City over keeping its current Hot Springs facility open.
