In Dec. 2017, the governor ordered an independent investigation, performed by Harmony Healthcare International, of the Veterans Homes in Warrensburg; Cameron; Mount Vernon; Cape Girardeau; Mexico; and St. James, Missouri. The audit revealed 95 percent of the comments collected by investigtors in interviews with staff, veterans, families and supporters were positive. Gov. Greitens commended the Warrensburg Home for being a positive example, according to the release.

The governor presented Eric Endsley, Missouri Veterans Commission Interim Director of the Homes Program, with a proclamation commending the Missouri Veterans Home in Warrensburg for providing excellent care.

“In Warrensburg, the Veterans Home is running well,” said Greitens. “I met with veterans, family members and staff who are capable, caring and love the veterans they work with every day. We are proud to be fighting for our veterans and grateful for the chance to be with them.”

Endsley said he witnessed first-hand the talent of those who volunteer to serve such a deserving community.

“It was an honor to welcome Gov. Greitens to Warrensburg, where he met the incredible Veterans who call MVH-W home and witnessed first-hand the unparalleled love and talent of our nearly 300 employees and countless volunteers who serve those who served for our nation,” said Endsley. “I look forward to working with Grace Link, Interim Director of Missouri Veterans Commission, and the Gove nor’s Office to ensure Missouri always challenges itself to provide better care and services to our state’s veterans.”
