Live from Capitol Hill: House VA Subcommittee listens to testimony on Philadelphia VA's brachytherapy program

This morning, the House VA Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a hearing to discuss the recent brachytherapy issues at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center and issues surrounding the prostate cancer procedures at VA health care facilities nationwide.

Rep. Harry Mitchell (D-Ariz.) chaired the hearing along with ranking member David Roe (R-Tenn.). The subcommittee reiterated concerns from the last hearing that the issues uncovered at the Philadelphia VA may be indicative of a system-wide issue.
