Congresswoman Jackson Lee stands for:
Access * Prevention * Expanding Medical Research * Reform * Medical Professionals
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is fighting to ensure that physician-owned hospitals, such as St. Joseph Medical Center in her district, are protected in the proposed health care bill. Jackson Lee has worked with leadership on an amendment that would save these hospitals that are currently treating patients or are under development to ensure that Americans can continue to receive healthcare at the local facilities they have come to depend on.
As President Obama continues to push for major health insurance and health care reforms, Congresswoman Jackson Lee will support his efforts and work to ensure that the middle class and our most vulnerable populations receive the healthcare coverage and access they need.
