On her deathbed, VA doctor blows the whistle on Mass. vets' care

Popular

Serving the underserved was the theme to Dr. Sarah Kemble's career, whether it be working with activists in Central America in the 1980s or helping found a community health center in Turners Falls.

With that spirit, she took a job in 2014 as chief of medicine for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for the central and western Massachusetts region. She believed that access to good health care care was a right, not a privilege

But her optimism soon turned to frustration and anger over what she believed were dangerous practices in the regional VA system not being addressed.

Kemble fought to make things better, but she died of cancer in December. Five days before she died, she completed a 23-page affidavit blowing the whistle on what she said was substandard care in the region.  On her deathbed, VA doctor blows the whistle on Mass. vets' care
