WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House is considering nominating the head of the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, Toby Cosgrove, as the next secretary of the troubled Department of Veterans Affairs, a source familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

Eric Shinseki resigned on Friday as secretary of the department amid a political firestorm over widespread delays in veterans' medical care.

President Barack Obama has named Deputy Veterans Affairs Secretary Sloan Gibson to lead the agency while he looks for a permanent replacement.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the White House was considering Cosgrove for the post.
