HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The interim director of the VA Montana Health Care System has been appointed to serve as the agency’s new permanent director.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs named Kathy Berger to the position Friday.

Berger began leading the agency in June after former director John Ginnity announced his resignation.

Before taking the job, Berger served as the director of the VA’s health care system in Sheridan, Wyoming.

Sens. Jon Tester and Steve Daines as well as Rep. Ryan Zinke have praised Berger’s appointment, saying they look forward to her leading Montana’s health care system in the right direction.

VA Montana manages the health care of more than 47,000 veterans.
