Christie signs bill to determine need for veterans' hospital in South Jersey

Christie signs bill to determine need for veterans' hospital in South Jersey

18-member task force will examine issue

Legislation that will establish a task force to study and make recommendations on how to build and operate a veterans' health care facility in southern New Jersey was signed into law Monday by Gov. Chris Christie.

The law (A-845) creates an 18-member task force to devise a plan for the veterans hospital.

South Jersey lacks a federal inpatient veterans medical center, forcing veterans needing inpatient care to travel to veterans' hospitals in North Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York or Delaware.

The Veterans Administration has clinics in Ventnor, Cape May and Vineland, but they only perform some outpatient medical services and are often overwhelmed by a large number of veterans seeking care.

The law establishes the New Jersey Veterans' Hospital Task Force to study, evaluate and make recommendations related to the construction and operation of a veterans' health care facility in southern New Jersey.
