Audit flags Pinellas County VA center for review

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (AP) - The C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center is one of eight facilities in the region requiring further review as the result of a nationwide audit of Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers.

The Young center, which used to be called Bay Pines VA Medical Center, was identified in an audit released by the Department of Veterans Affairs on Monday. Systemwide, auditors found a host of concerns, including a complicated scheduling process and wait times.
