Miller Statement on Firing of VA Pittsburgh Director Two Years After Deadly Disease Outbreak

WASHINGTON Chairman Jeff Miller released the below statement following VA’s announcement that VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System Director Terry Gerigk Wolf has been fired.

“Given that Wolf’s firing comes two years after the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System Legionnaires’ disease outbreak ended, it’s obvious VA had no interest in holding her accountable initially and was only driven to this point after intense congressional and media scrutiny. Still, this action falls fall short of what’s needed to provide closure to the veterans and families struck by an outbreak that VA failed to stop and actively hid from the public. Though VA is finally holding someone accountable, we must also remember that the department has rewarded other central figures in the outbreak. Wolf’s boss collected a $63,000 bonus days after the Inspector General attributed the outbreak to mismanagement and VA recently promoted Wolf’s deputy even though internal emails provide smoking-gun evidence he tried to hide the outbreak from the public. Though Wolf’s removal is a positive step, VA still has a lot to learn about honesty, integrity and accountability, and this action doesn’t change that fact.” – Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
