New Time: Democratic Primary Candidate Craig Fitzhugh To Hold Press Conference At McKenzie Regional Hospital

(August 1) Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Craig Fitzhugh, one of the most vocal proponents of Medicaid expansion, feels that this is another unnecessary, politically-caused hurdle when it comes to affordable healthcare in Tennessee. Fitzhugh says the legislature could have avoided this issue by simply implementing Gov. Haslam’s Insure Tennessee initiative and will be holding a press conference this afternoon in McKenzie to address the loss of another rural hospital:

“We have had yet another hospital close in this state while the monies to keep them open and serving Tennesseans have been left off the table. This is terrible for Northwest Tennessee and for the city of McKenzie. As Governor, one of my biggest priorities will be to fight for Medicaid expansion. Our rural communities need accessible healthcare options and to continue to close hospitals is not only costly but possibly life-threatening for rural Tennesseans. We can do better. ”

When: August 1st, Wednesday, 4:15 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (CST)

 

Where:  McKenzie Regional Hospital, 161 Hospital Dr, McKenzie, TN 38201
