The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "We have known for a decade that the quality of care being offered by Veterans Administration hospitals and clinics was less than acceptable, especially for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma. About one-third of the diagnosed victims of mesothelioma we try to help are Veterans of the US Navy.
"After making certain the victim, or their family members, have instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys, we simultaneously do everything possible to make they know who the best oncology specialists are in their area, or their region. We stopped suggesting VA medical centers more than five years ago because we were receiving so many complaints. No other group in the nation offers this service."

According to MSN News on May 14th, 2014,"The time is now. The place is Phoenix, Arizona where a message needs to be sent loud and clear to VA administrators and bureaucrats alike that the murder of our veterans for cash bonuses and career advancement will no longer be tolerated," wrote Dr. Samuel Foote, who retired after spending nearly 25 years with the VA. Foote alleges up to 40 veterans may have died while awaiting treatment at the Phoenix hospital and that staff, at the instruction of administrators, who allegedly kept a secret list of patients waiting for appointments to hide delays in care. Allegedly he believes administrators kept the off-the-books list to impress their bosses and get bonuses." http://news.msn.com/us/a-look-at-allegations-of-cover-ups-at-va-hospitals
