VAPIHCS Director Retires

‎News Release from VAPIHCS February 17, 2016

On February 12, 2016, Mr. Wayne Pfeffer retired from Federal Service after 41 years. Mr. Pfeffer became the Director of the VA Pacific Islands Health Care System in October of 2013. Mr. Pfeffer’s retirement, although sudden, was for personal reasons. 

The VA is not at liberty to discuss the personal reasons that precipitated Mr. Pfeffer’s decision, as we respect his privacy. Mr. Pfeffer is now a private citizen, and we wish him all the best in his retirement.

Dr. Tonia Bagby, Associate Director at the VA Pacific Islands Health Care System is currently serving as Acting Director.

The health care of our Veterans continue to be our priority and ‎all services continue uninterrupted.
