FILE - In this June 9, 2014 file photo, David and Marianne Trujillo exit the Vetarans Affairs facility in El Paso, Texas. In an analysis of six months of appointment data at 940 VA hospitals and clinics nationwide from September 2014 to February 2015, despite a nationwide push to lessen the wait times for veterans seeking health care, VA medical facilities across Texas have shown little to no sustained progress. The dilemma mirrors a trend across the country in which facilities are struggling to improve how often they meet the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' goal to have patients seen within 30 days.
