During the forum, Veterans and other members of the public at large will be given the opportunity to share their views, opinions, and feelings about the proposal to move the VA Hospital from its current location to a site located in downtown Louisville. Patrick Duerr said, “This is their facility, and our Veterans deserve to have their voices heard. Their needs should be our primary concern.”
Patrick continued, “The purpose of this event is to provide a forum for the views of our Veterans, their loved ones and friends and the public at large, to be heard and help understand not only the medical needs of our Veterans but also the mental and emotional aspects of the unique nature of medical care for our Veterans.” Several speakers are scheduled to attend to share their knowledge of the VA Hospital.
