Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson Participates in VA Hospital Emergency Room Ribbon Cutting
DALLAS, TX – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson today attended the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Dallas VA Medical Center Emergency Department. The new department provides 27 Main Emergency Department beds, each in its own individual, private room.
“It is important that we, as a nation, continue giving our servicemen and servicewomen – who gave this country every measure of their devotion to protect the we freedoms we all hold most dear – the care they need when they are most vulnerable,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “This new Emergency Department essentially doubles the capacity of the Medical Center and doubles the accessibility of veterans to get the care they need right now. I am pleased to open the new Emergency Department and look forward to many years of productive use.”
Congresswoman Johnson, the first registered nurse elected to Congress, served as the Dallas VA Hospital’s chief psychiatric nurse for 16 years and represents a large population of veterans from the 30th Congressional District of Texas who utilize the VA system for their primary health care services.
