The fight over veterans healthcare continues in a war of words between the brass at Carthage Area Hospital and Valor Healthcare, which was awarded the bid to provide services in the Watertown area. Carthage has been providing the service for six years after winning the contract from Mercy. This time the Veterans Administration awarded the bid to Valor, sparking an ugly exchange at a press conference with accusations that Valor is not suitable and that an insider deal resulted in the award.
Valor plans to operate the clinic in the Town of Watertown, although Carthage will likely extend their services beyond the contract end to prevent a lapse in service.
