United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald says he has yet to make a decision whether to close the VA facility in Hot Springs. McDonald took a tour of the hospital Wednesday morning.
McDonald’s visit comes after an Environmental Impact Statement says the VA prefers to close a major part of the facility and move many services to Rapid City.
For over five years Veterans Affairs has been talking about closing the VA facility in Hot Springs.
The hospital is known in part for its Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder treatment program.
