Senator Grassley Visits Decatur County Hospital

Last week, Senator Charles Grassley visited Decatur County Hospital in Leon to discuss healthcare issues with hospital staff and board members. Senator Grassley’s visit started with a tour to view our patient rooms, nursing station, emergency services department, cardio-pulmonary office, outpatient clinic area, physical and occupational rehab department, and our new Senior Life Solutions program.

During Senator Grassley’s forum with DCH staff, the Senator covered topics related to insurance costs, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, and healthcare regulations.
