Congressman Mike Bost, R-Murphysboro, is spending the next few days visiting health-care facilities across Southern Illinois. The tour will take him to several communities in the 12th Congressional District where he will visit health-care centers, organizations and professionals.
“Everywhere I go, people tell me they’re worried about the future of their health care,” Bost said “Throughout Southern Illinois, we have numerous hospitals, clinics and organizations that are administering quality health-care on a daily basis to thousands of patients. By visiting some of these facilities and talking firsthand with doctors, health-care administrators and patients themselves, I will best able to fight for their needs in Congress. I look forward to continuing the conversation with those who are on the front line of health care.”
