(S.D.) - Save the VA committee plans proposal release
HOT SPRINGS - The Save the VA Campaign central committee has scheduled a town hall type meeting, to reveal the details of the group's proposal for retaining the health care services for area veterans.
The meeting is set to begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 30, at the Mueller Civic Center in Hot Springs.
All are invited to listen to the proposal that has been crafted from the work of more than a dozen different volunteer committees, in response to a proposal delivered Dec. 12, 2011, by VA Black Hills Health Care System director Steve DiStasio and Veterans Integrated Services Network 23 director Janet Murphy.
The VA's Dec. 12 proposal calls for the closure of the Hot Springs VA Medical Center, construction of a Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Hot Springs, moving the PTSD and Substance Abuse therapies accomplished at the Domiciliary in Hot Springs to a new site in Rapid City and contracting for services such as pharmacy, lab work and x-ray with Fall River Hospital.
