Writer believes all hospitals should have a VA plan

Every political candidate stated that we must take care of our veterans.

An important step was to create the Health Net program to take care of procedures on a timely basis and have them performed locally to omit that long trip to Charleston. Conway Medical Center claims they take care of vets but the fact is that they do not participate in the VA programs.

If you have insurance, you'll be okay but if not you can go to Grand Strand Medical Center or Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital. It's all about the money.

I have thoroughly discussed this with the VA, the hospital and five of the Health Net sites. I believe they should take care of everyone, regardless, especially us before this coming Memorial Day holiday.
