WASHINGTON, D.C. – As part of U.S. Senator Roy Blunt’s (Mo.) continued efforts to meet with job creators and health care providers across Missouri to discuss the challenges they face regarding the implementation of President Barack Obama’s health care law, the Senator spoke to Missouri health care leaders from Mercy this week, who were in Washington, D.C. representing the American Medical Group Association.

The meeting was attended by Donn Sorensen, Regional President of the Mercy’s East Communities in St. Louis, Mo. and Dr. Fred McQueary, President of Mercy Clinic North Central Communities in Springfield, Mo.

“I enjoyed meeting with these leaders from Mercy to discuss ways we can work together to improve access to health care for patients across Missouri,” said Blunt. “Americans are rightly concerned about the impact and cost of President Obama’s health care takeover, and that’s why I’ll continue to support common-sense reforms that improve patients’ access to affordable, quality health care.”
