State Looks To Expand Veteran Care

Posted: Updated:

Right now, the wait time for an appointment at the VA hospital in Fargo is about 17 days. 

Officials say that's a number they're comfortable with, but there is room for improvement.

As the conversation about the VA hospital wait time heats up on the national level, U.S. Sen. John Hoeven presses for more hospitals to take in veterans.

Fargo's VA hospital is nearly at full staff, but as the state continues to grow in population, they plan on hiring a master scheduler to ensure that they give the best care possible in the most appropriate time frame.
