The Department of Veterans Affairs fired the former director of the Washington D.C. VA Medical Center, who was reassigned to VA headquarters in April, according to a report Tuesday.
In a statement Tuesday, the agency said Brian Hawkins "failed to provide effective leadership at the medical center," NBC4 in Washington first reported.
D.C.'s VA Medical Center had reassigned Hawkins in April to the new position at the VA headquarters after an internal inspection of the Washington D.C. VA Medical Center found shortages of medical supplies and unsanitary conditions.
Congressional leaders and military veterans criticized Hawkins' reassignment to a significant position.
In June, NBC4 reported the D.C. VA Medical Center experienced a cockroach infestation in 2015.
A report released Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General said Hawkins also shared "sensitive" agency information on a private, unsecure email address with his spouse.
Problems at the D.C. VA Medical Center have continued since Hawkins' departure.
The House Committee on Veterans Affairs is reviewing how a missing military veteran's body was found after being undiscovered in a parking lot for almost two days.
