Obama aide tasked with VA review coming to Phoenix

PHOENIX -- One of President Barack Obama's closest advisers is headed to Phoenix as the Veterans Affairs Department grapples with allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at the Arizona VA hospital system.

VA spokesman Drew Brookie tells The Associated Press that White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rob Nabors will meet Thursday with leadership at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Medical Center, including with interim director Steve Young.

Obama announced last week that Nabors would be assigned to oversee a review of the beleaguered VA health care system after allegations of possible patient deaths due to delayed care and a cover-up by top administrators in Phoenix.

The allegations have sparked a firestorm on Capitol Hill, and the VA's undersecretary for health care has since stepped down amid the ongoing probe.
