Both VA hospitals in Middle Tennessee are reporting significant improvements in operations but complaints are still coming in. According to a new report released this month by the VA, The Tennessee Valley Healthcare System is operating on a more timely schedule. Doctors are able to see 90% of patients at both the Nashville and Murfreesboro campus within a 30-day window, but local administrators admit it is not going to be a quick fix.
