Michael E. Moreland, former director of the Veterans Affairs Pittsburgh Healthcare System, who was in charge during the deadly Legionnaires’ disease outbreak has returned to the Pittsburgh VA.

According to VA Pittsburgh spokesman Donald Manuszewski, Moreland was visited the VA on May 1 as part of a national VA contract with Shipcom Wireless, which is in a deal to improve supply deliveries at the 152 VA medical centers in the US.

Although Moreland’s presence at the VA enraged congressional leaders, union organizers, and families and victims of the Legionnaires’ disease outbreak, but Moreland claims he’s just doing his job.

“I’m a private citizen working for a private company.  That’s it.” said Moreland.
