MONAHANS — State Representative Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa) participated in the Ward Memorial Hospital board meeting on Thursday to discuss the local and statewide response to the COVID-19 pandemic and answer questions from the board members regarding the upcoming 2021 Texas Legislative Session.
“I had a great discussion with Chairman Fausett and the rest of the board members," Landgraf said. "Hospitals, especially rural hospitals, are facing significant challenges right now, and I'm impressed with how Ward Memorial is rising to the challenge."
Landgraf, who represents Ward County in the Texas House of Representatives, met with the board members to offer any assistance the hospital may need from the state.
“It's important for me to hear from the boots on the ground, now more than ever,” Landgraf continued. “I want to be sure the hospital has all of the state resources it needs to respond to the ongoing health crisis.”
Landgraf is attending this and other local government meetings across the Permian Basin to keep locals informed about actions to combat the coronavirus and prepare for the next session of the Texas Legislature, which convenes at the Texas Capitol in January 2021.
