MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Some Manchester VA Medical Center providers will be seeing patients at Catholic Medical Center while repairs are made to the veterans hospital after recent flooding.

A burst pipe caused severe flooding at the Manchester facility last month, just after the Boston Globe published allegations of substandard care and conditions. Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin visited the hospital last week, has removed three top officials and ordered an investigation.

Meanwhile, patients who need endoscopies and other same-day procedures, can have them performed by their VA providers at Catholic Medical Center. Catholic Medical Center chief operating officer Alex Walker says the hospital wants to continue to be a resource for veterans long after the repairs are made.
