BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Thursday night, Congress wrapped up legislation to revamp the Veterans Affairs Department.

It's in response to the scandal over delays in care at VA medical facilities nationwide.

The Senate approved a $16-billion bill that will help veterans get the treatment they need without major wait times. It now heads to President Obama for his signature.

Here in West Michigan, initial reports showed the VA Hospital in Battle Creek ranked the worst in the state for patient wait times.

Newschannel 3's Julia Fello spoke one-on-one with the hospital's public affairs officer, who wants to set the record straight in the video report above.
