Congressman Charlie Crist (D-St. Petersburg) issued the following statement regarding the announced leadership changes at the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System. Earlier this year, Crist publicly called for an investigation by the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection after receiving dozens of troubling claims of abuse from Bay Pines employees. Crist first shared his concerns and allegations with the Whistleblower office last year for investigation.

"Bay Pines is a world class facility.  But over the last year, serious concerns have been raised calling into question the leadership of this preeminent facility," said Crist. "For the well-being of our veterans and Bay Pines employees, this is a positive step for the entire community and an opportunity to get things back on track."
