Press Release

(Concord, NH) – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02), a member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, released the following statement on Al Montoya becoming the Medical Center Director at the Manchester VA Medical Center:

“Veterans in New Hampshire have been failed by the systemic challenges they have faced in accessing quality care at the Manchester VA Medical Center. I’m encouraged that actions have been taken to right the ship in Manchester but it’s clear that there is more work to be done. Director Montoya has been a steady hand in overseeing operations at White River Junction and his experience will be valuable as Medical Center Director at Manchester VAMC. White River Junction serves veterans throughout the Granite State and it’s critical that strong leadership continues at WRJVAMC and I urge the VA to ensure a well-qualified replacement is found.  I look forward to continuing to work with Mr. Montoya to identify how we can improve access to care at the Manchester VAMC and better serve veterans throughout the Granite State.”
