White River Junction VA Director Reassigned

The director of the Veterans Administration Hospital in White River Junction, Vermont is has been assigned to the Phoenix, Arizona VA Health Care System.

Under Amdur’s tenure at the White River Junction VA, the hospital saw a more than 11 percent increase in the number of Veterans coming for care across a five year period. Outpatient clinic appointments increasing by more than 8% this past year. 

Amdur says she’s honored to have been chosen for this role.
