VA reps host healthcare forum for Island veterans Wednesday


Representatives from the Providence VA Medical Center (VAMC) will host a meeting with Island veterans to discuss local healthcare services at 5:30 pm, Wednesday, May 8, at American Legion Post #257 in Vineyard Haven.

VAMC Director Vincent Ng, Dr. Monty VanBeber, and Public Affairs Officer Tom Antonaccio will attend. Mr. Antonaccio said the meeting will give veterans an opportunity to comment on how things are working out for them since a new contract between the Providence VAMC and Martha’s Vineyard Hospital went into effect last October.

For more information, call Dukes County Director of Veterans Services Jo Ann Murphy at 508-693-6887.
