Illinois Congresswoman Cheri Bustos paid a visit to Swedish American’s new Riverwest Clinic on Monday.
The Democratic congresswoman had the chance to tour the facility at 815 Marchesano Drive, and discuss issues related to health care in the area.
She met with clinic physicians and staff, and spoke about topics including the cost of prescription drugs.
Bustos said her visit is meant to shed light on improving healthcare and making it accessible to more people. She also said the facility successfully fills a need in the community.
“Accessibility, affordability, making people feel comfortable — that’s what you strive for when you’re a healthcare facility,” she said.
Bustos returns to Washington next week to share her findings.
