In 2016 medical the G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery received 2 stars and the Gulf Coast VA received one start. In 2017 it remains the same. There are veterans that will tell you they receive excellent care and there are veterans who receive awful care. We must put more weight to the veterans whose care is subpar no matter how excellent it may be for other veterans. You are only as strong as your weakest link. The VA for years respond with “a lesson learned” when things go terribly wrong, but then the next thing happens and they say again “a lesson learned” but it clearly is not being learned if it gets repeated.
Secret wait lists, sterilization issues, and more seem to repeat no matter how many “lessons they learned”.

Looking back here’s a story from 2013
The G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center in Jackson, Miss., has had seven whistleblowers, the most at any of the Department of Veteran Affairs’ 153 hospitals across the country, according to congressional sources and the Office of Special Counsel. Dr. Phyllis Hollenbeck, who works at the VA in Jackson, is one of the whistleblowers.
