MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — In a recent review, the Department of Veterans Affairs Montana Health Care System ranked high in patient satisfaction but came in near the bottom for patient wait times and employee satisfaction.

The Missoulian reports that in a March review by the VA inspector general, VA Montana scored 51st in patient satisfaction out of 128 facilities.

However, the report ranked the Montana VA in the bottom eight in wait times for specialty care, primary care and mental health treatment. The system was ranked in the bottom three in employee satisfaction.

VA Montana Congressional liaison Gail Wilkerson says the system is taking steps to address the deficiencies.
