Terry Gerigk Wolf, the director of the Veterans Affairs Pittsburgh Healthcare System, was placed on leave Friday, June 13, 2014. According to spokeswoman Ramona Joyce, this decision was made by the acting Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Sloan Gibson.
“This is the first of several possible administrative actions that will be taken” against Ms. Wolf. “It did take a while” to act, “but we had to do our due diligence” after the OIG completed its investigation, said Ms. Joyce.
David Macpherson, who has been the chief medical officer for the regional VA since June 2007, was also named the acting director in Ms. Wolf’s stead.
