Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu signed an executive order that allows physicians at Manchester’s Veterans Affairs Medical Center to provide medical care to VA patients outside of the Manchester VA facility.
“The state of New Hampshire is committed to delivering results for New Hampshire’s veterans,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “This executive order provides for a continuum of services for our veterans, and we will stop at nothing to deliver the best care. Period.”
Dr. Joseph Pepe, President & CEO, Catholic Medical Center “This is about stepping up for New Hampshire’s veterans, and Catholic Medical Center is proud to work alongside the Department of Veterans Affairs and Governor Sununu so that we can ensure New Hampshire’s veterans are taken care of right now.”
Alfred “Al” Montoya, Acting Director of the Manchester VA Medical Center said, “On Friday, I asked Governor Sununu to consider allowing Manchester VA providers licensed outside New Hampshire to practice in our community hospitals. Today, less than one business day later, we celebrate the executive order that makes that possible. This action will result in greater access to care for New Hampshire’s Veterans, which is precisely what they deserve.”
