Texas Children’s Hospital Welcomes U.S. House Rep. Dan Crenshaw for Robust Policy Discussion
Texas Children’s Hospital recently welcomed U.S. House Representative Dan Crenshaw to our main campus to discuss health policy initiatives and the importance of children’s health care.
Rep. Crenshaw, who represents Texas’ second congressional district, met with executive leaders from the hospital, including Chief of Congenital Heart Surgery Dr. Christopher Caldarone, Chief of Neurology and Developmental Neuroscience Dr. Gary Clark, and Director of the Cancer and Hematology Centers Dr. Susan Blaney. The Congressman also met with the hospital’s four executive vice presidents, who shared insights and expertise on policy priorities that advance the hospital’s tri-part mission of patient care, medical education and research – ensuring all families have access to children’s hospitals.
During their conversation, they discussed the critical role access to care can play in a child’s development. Additionally, our efforts to support innovative research and our focus on medical residency and training programs.
Following their discussion, Rep. Crenshaw toured multiple areas of the hospital, including the Texas Children’s Mission Control room – the state-of-the-art nerve center that brings together vital hospital operations – in the new Lester and Sue Smith Legacy Tower. The Congressman and his team then toured the Texas Children’s Heart Center, Blue Bird Circle Clinic for Pediatric Neurology, and Cancer and Hematology Centers, where he took time to speak with families.
