The director of Roudebush Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Indianapolis said Tuesday the facility has reduced its patient wait times by two thirds. That assertion came during a visit from Indiana congresswomen Susan Brooks and Jackie Walorski. The representatives were taking a tour of the medical center in response to concerns about long patient wait times, falsified records and preventable deaths at VA facilities across the country. Tom Mattice, director of the 229-bed hospital just west of Downtown, said the facility has made important strides in reducing wait times.
