Governor Scott said, “National media have documented poor treatment of veterans at federal hospitals in Florida and other states to the point where 14 veterans sustained injuries and five of these veterans tragically lost their lives. In Florida we strive to be the most veteran friendly state in the country – and we must fight to protect those who have so bravely fought to defend and protect our nation. AHCA should take immediate action to shine a light on the processes of Veterans Affairs hospitals in Florida.”
