VA Bay Pines Medical Center to Get New Director

The VA Medical Center at Bay Pines is getting a new director.  Wanda Mims, who currently oversees VA facilities in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, has been named to the post.  Ms. Mims replaces Wallace Hopkins who retired after 35 years of service to the VA. 

The Bay Pines VAMC rests on a beautiful campus on Florida's west coast in Pinellas County, situated between Clearwater and St. Petersburg.  It is the the fourth largest veterans medical facility in the U.S..  It has nearly 4000 employees and treats about 100,000 veterans a year on a budget approaching $500 million.  Most of the Veterans I have represented and gotten to know in the area tell me they get good care at Bay Pines.  Their doctors are not very willing to fill out forms or write letters in the different types of disability cases we handle (like Social Security Disability or private disability insurance claims), but the majority of the medical professionals at the VAMC get high marks from my clients.
