The American Legion has released a new report on the state of women veterans healthcare. From October 2012 to April 2013, the Legion's System Worth Saving Task Force conducted 15 VA medical center site visits in order to evaluate the quality of care provided for women veterans. During these site visits, the System Worth Saving Task Force met with each facility's executive leadership team, women veterans program manager, patient advocate, enrollment and business office, mental health staff, homeless veteran's coordinator, military sexual trauma coordinator, suicide prevention coordinator and women veterans' health committee, and reviewed the environment of care. Additionally, town hall meetings were conducted at American Legion posts near the VA medical centers to hear firsthand from women veterans on their level of health care.To download the free publication, visit the American Legion site.
