Leaders from the Mayo Clinic, Partners HealthCare, and other large hospital systems have been quietly advising the Trump administration on how to improve the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Mayo Clinic’s chief executive said Thursday in Boston. “We have been working behind the scenes to help the White House and [former] Secretary Shulkin to help the VA,” Dr. John Noseworthy told business leaders at a meeting of the Boston College Chief Executives Club. “We will continue to provide advice and counsel in the background.”
