Congressman Mike Turner released the following statement upon the news that an investigation has been opened at the Dayton Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) to look into allegations of improper conduct by an employee in the anesthesia unit:

“If true, these allegations are troubling to say the least. Since the Dental scandal this past year I have been concerned about the management and standards at the Dayton VAMC. Our Veterans deserve the safe and reliable healthcare they were promised when they entered military service.  The new Director, Glen Costie, has indicated that he will take this matter seriously and provide a full accounting to our community.”
