According to a report from WMUR, a doctor who filed a whistleblower complaint alleging substandard care at the NH center for veterans has died following a car crash on 95 South yesterday afternoon.  Dr. William Kois of Newburyport, Massachusetts was driving his car southbound on 95 in Hampton when his car left the road and drove into a guardrail.  Police believe a medical event led to the crash.  Dr. Kois was director of the spinal cord clinic at the Manchester VA Medical Center.

According to WMUR report, one of his colleagues, Alfred Montonya said:

Dr. Kois was a key member of the Manchester VAMC family, and his dedication to the patients was an integral part of our success..... Dr. Kois improved care for veterans through his advocacy, collaboration and innovation. He was incredibly passionate about the care he provided to our nation’s heroes and he will truly be missed. Our thoughts are with Dr. Kois’ family during this difficult time.
