The American Legion recently conducted a survey of 25 Veterans Affairs medical centers, and though the organization found the level of care to be impressive, there was certainly room for improvement. Specifically, the Legion cited the fact that the Washington VA office could be more involved, according to Military Times.

The findings, published in the System Worth Saving Task Force Report, suggested that the considerable efforts made to provide better care at VA centers over the last several years have paid off. Most of the programs were focused on improving a better quality of care, but the Legion says the VA still needs to implement some changes to make sure strides continue to be made.

"If [the] VA is truly moving toward a patient-centered model of care, it needs to move away from automation and toward a more personalized approach," Jacob Gadd, the Legion's deputy director of health, said in a statement.

The DoD and VA have both made veterans' health a priority, as evidenced by their latest move. The two departments recently invested more than $100 million to research the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.
