In a July 15, 2017 investigative report by the Spotlight team at the Boston Globe, details emerged about dysfunction and sub-standard care at the Manchester VA Medical Center. According to the Globe article, doctors have almost no say in how the hospital is run. They lack tools to do their jobs and witness chronic shortcomings in patient care. Of the four top hospital administrators, only one is a doctor. The VA doctors allege the administrators are solely concerned with performance ratings.
