Davis Statement on VA Naming Permanent Director of St. Louis VA Health System
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) released this statement after the VA announced it will name Keith Repko as the new director of the VA St. Louis Health Care System. Repko has been acting director since January 2016.
“Hopefully this announcement will mean greater certainty and quality of care for veterans at the St. Louis VA,” said Davis. “St. Louis-area veterans have waited far too long for a permanent leader at this facility. They deserve a VA that is focused on responsiveness and one that provides them with the best care possible. I hope Mr. Repko’s familiarity with the facility will make this a seamless transition and I look forward to working with him to ensure veterans are receiving the care they deserve.”
Davis, along with other members of the St. Louis-area congressional delegation, has repeatedly urged the VA to appoint a permanent director of the St. Louis VA facility.
