WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman David Rouzer (NC-07) recently hosted a healthcare roundtable with doctors and community healthcare professionals to discuss the challenges facing our healthcare system.
“As we emerge from the pandemic, we face many other challenges ahead on a number of fronts,” said Rep. Rouzer. “Health care is no exception. Because the federal government is significantly involved in this sector, Congress must understand the lessons learned from the experiences of our healthcare professionals if for no other reason than to keep from doing harm when Congress passes new laws or the executive branch issues new regulations.”
“As with every sector of the economy, lack of workforce is the number one challenge. Doctors, nurses and support staff are in short supply — especially in more rural areas. I appreciate the ideas shared to help address this critical problem.”
