It was just announced a few months ago that in Colorado the expected wait time to get an office visit is 18 days which is 4x higher than the national average.  Throughout the 13 hospitals and clinics that make up the Eastern Colorado Health Care System, the average wait for a primary care appointment as of July 1 was more than 12 days. Only Amarillo, Texas, and Palo Alto, Calif. — both smaller than ECHCS — were worse.  This is unacceptable! I know the following issue is a Federal issue but as a State Representative I would be an advocate for homeless veterans with veterans affairs such as assisting vets to get off the streets through reintegration initiatives with our local communities.

I am the proud son of an Army Veteran; Randy Nouis, proud nephew two uncles who served in the Army; Todd Nouis and Air Force; Perry Nouis. I am the proud grandson of my grandparents who have founded one of the largest veterans home’s in all of Minnesota, Nouis Home Care; LeRoy and Beverly Nouis.  Two of my other uncles manage Nouis Home Care; Roy and Troy Nouis.
