U.S. Representative to visit southern Illinois VA hospital

MARION - A United States Representative is planning to tour a southern Illinois veterans' hospital this week.

Representative John Shimkus will tour the Marion VA Medical Center on Monday.  This will be the congressman's first visit to the facility since a growing public outcry over the deaths of patients who were waiting VA treatment and mounting evidence that workers falsified or omitted appointment schedules to hide long, frequent delays.

Shimkus' office says he will talk to the media after he visits with staff and patients Monday afternoon.
