Congressman Joe Barton visited Children’s Medical Center Dallas on Aug. 7 to discuss legislation introduced earlier this summer. The “Advancing Care for Exceptional Kids Act”, or ACE Kids Act of 2014 (H.R. 4930), would improve care coordination for children enrolled in Medicaid who have complex medical needs. While at Children’s, Barton visited with children in the Heart Center and the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, the very type who would benefit from the legislation.
“I was thoroughly impressed during my tour of Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. The state of the art cancer treatment and heart treatment facilities save lives every day. The only thing more remarkable was the team the hospital has assembled – from the leadership group headed up by CEO Chris Durovich to the doctors, nurses and everyone who cares for these very special patients. This is a place our community can be proud of and depend on.” – Joe Barton, US Congressman, 6th District of Texas.
