A La Crosse business is expected to hire hundreds of employees after teaming up with the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI) says it’s preparing to hire up to 1200 employees.

It’s been awarded VA contracts to provide medical disability examinations to veteran and separating service members through the Veteran’s Benefits Administrations (VBA) Medical Disability Examinations Program.

Under the new VBA contracts LHI will provide veterans with medical disability examinations in four districts, along with assisting the VA with veterans seeking disability benefits for service-related health issues.
