Atlanta VA Center officials say they are working to improve wait times and access to their care facilities.

As a nationwide growing problem of long VA center wait times peak, the Atlanta VA Center stands out among the worst of them. The Atlanta VA Center was ranked the 3rd worst in the country after it ranked a wait average of 56.5 days.

The Atlanta VA Center is preceded by a Fayetteville, N. C. center with an average of 56.8 days and the worst wait time in Nashville with a 65 day wait.

The nationwide VA wait average is 27 days.

Officials have found these wait times as being unacceptable and have begun construction on a Decatur outpatient building.
