Today, Congressman Mike Turner released the following statement on Glenn Costie, the new Director of the Dayton VA Medical Center:
“This past year has been a difficult period for the Dayton VAMC. I would like to thank outgoing Director Bill Montague for his leadership during that time, and in working with my office and the community to find answers for our veterans who were impacted by oversight in basic safety standards at the dental clinic. He has also worked with me and my office in the continued effort to have the facility designated as a National Historic Landmark. He has truly worked to change the direction of the VA, and I commend him for his efforts.
“I am glad to have Glenn Costie join the Dayton VAMC, and look forward to working with him in the days and years ahead. There are many exciting projects at the Dayton VA which will require his attention. This includes the recent announcement of the St. Mary’s housing project on the campus, the effort to land a National Archives facility, and the continued care of those who have bravely and honorably served our country. I share Directors Montague and Costie’s commitment to ensuring that our veterans receive the best care available, and am encouraged by the new direction at the Dayton VA.”
