FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks says it will hold a town hall meeting next month to provide an update into an investigation of an impaired pathologist who is linked to at least seven missed diagnoses and a potential death.

In a press release Monday, the hospital said representatives from the Veterans Benefits Administration will also be on hand July 9 to answer veterans’ concerns and related benefits questions.

The VA is reviewing about 33,000 cases for nearly 19,800 veterans that the unidentified pathologist handled over about 12 years. As of last week, they had reviewed just over 900 cases.

The pathologist was removed from clinical care in October after he was reported a second time for being impaired on duty. In April the hospital fired the pathologist.
