Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO investigated alleged improper personnel practices by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) at the Addeliar D. Guy III VA Ambulatory Care Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, focusing on whether Dr. Anthony Salem maintained a hit list for the purpose of disciplining or terminating ambulatory center employees known to be strong advocates of health care for veterans.

GAO noted that: (1) GAO found insufficient evidence to substantiate the allegation of a hit list; (2) however, a number of the individuals GAO interviewed during the course of its investigation raised concerns about the quality of health care at the center; and (3) these concerns have been referred to the VA Office of the Inspector General.
