LOS ANGELES (AP) - About 2.8 percent of medical appointments completed at U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs facilities from August to February failed to meet the health system’s timeliness goal, which calls for patients to be seen within 30 days.

Here’s a look at how California VA centers fared from September to February, when facility-level data became available. Each facility is accompanied by total appointments completed during that period, care that was delayed at least 31 days and percentage delayed at least 31 days.
