Washington, DC – Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, today sent a letter to Dr. David Shulkin, Under Secretary of Health at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), requesting an update on the broken cooling and ventilation system at the Northport VA. The operating rooms were closed in February of 2016 due to issues with an outdated HVAC system. As of today, only 3 of the 5 operating rooms are now being used and only with a temporary solution. In Congressman Zeldin’s letter to the VA, he requested information on this issue and other issues at the Northport VA.
