Washington, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Chair of the House Republican Conference, was honored by the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) as “Legislator of the Year” for her outstanding work in promoting the quality of health care for those in rural America. 

“As someone who grew up on a family farm in rural Eastern Washington, I know that rural communities have unique needs – and face significant challenges – when it comes to accessing quality health care.  I am honored to accept this year’s ‘Legislator of the Year’ award,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.

Rep. McMorris Rodgers serves as Co-Chair of the Rural Health Care Coalition and introduced the Rural Hospital and Provider Equity (R-HoPE) Act with Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) in the 112th Congress.  She also co-authored the Primary Care Workforce Access Improvement Act of 2013, which would promote the training of primary care physicians in rural areas.

“It’s time for us to reduce challenges those in rural America face – and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health makes that possible.  This is an organization whose mission I wholeheartedly support, and I am looking forward to continuing our relationship to help those in America’s rural communities.”
