INFOGRAPHIC: Digging into the numbers behind Leeds VA wait-times

Last modified: Monday, January 01, 0001
There's more to wait-times at the VA of Central Western Massachusetts in Leeds than the 67 days new patients hold on to see a specialist.

The local VA is on the high side of many wait-time categories in New England. Officials say money isn't the problem it's staffing, in that the nationwide doctor shortage - felt particularly hard in Western Massachusetts - is making it difficult to recruit doctors.
