‘There needs to be a better system in place:’ Wisconsin 9/11 responder left waiting for treatment

World Trade Center recovery worker Peter Jensen of Mukwonago, Wisconsin had surgery for chronic sinusitus on February 6, 2018, months after his doctor recommended it in September, reports Jenna Sachs for Fox 6 Milwaukee.

Recovery workers and those sick from the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks often face delays in treatment. The problem can be worse in areas far from New York City, as these places have fewer people sick from their work at the World Trade Center site and less experience in treating them.

In Wisconsin, World Trade Center Health Program cases are contracted to Logistics Health Inc. in La Crosse.

The article doesn’t state what agency Jensen worked with during the recovery effort, describing him only as a “9/11 responder” who worked in the “planning section” for 40 days.
