Gibson said an assessment team visited the Central Alabama VA in September and issued a report with sobering findings. He said it found chronic instability and turnover in leadership, significant understaffing, lack of trust among employees, failed labor-management relations, and an environment of secrecy and deception.
Despite those problems, he said, "This is not Phoenix," referring to a troubled VA hospital in Arizona.
He indicated more changes in leadership may be ahead as the VA seeks to build trust in the Central Alabama VA. He said the VA is adding staff and cutting patient wait times. It added 31 employees this month and is in the process of adding 135 more, which will represent about a 10 percent increase in staff. But that won't fill all the vacant staff positions, he said.
Gibson said he will be back in Montgomery before Thanksgiving to assess how the Central Alabama VA is doing.

A career banker, Gibson was confirmed by the Senate on Feb. 11 as deputy VA secretary, just weeks before allegations of long waits for care and doctor's appointments at VA hospitals across the country led to mounting bipartisan calls by lawmakers and others for Shinseki to resign.

Gibson, 61, came to the department after serving as president and chief executive officer of the USO, the nonprofit organization that provides programs, services and entertainment to U.S. troops and their families. During his five years at the USO, net fundraising grew by 90 percent, funding an expansion of programs, according to Gibson's bio on the VA website.
"I'm grateful that he is willing to take on this task," Obama said, noting Gibson's two decades of experience in the private and nonprofit sectors.

Gibson is the son of an Army air corpsman who served as a B-17 tail-gunner during World War II. His grandfather was an Army infantryman who was wounded in World War I while serving in the 3rd Infantry Division at the Second Battle of the Marne.
Gibson is a 1975 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York, where he earned airborne and ranger qualifications and served as an Army infantry officer.
