Rep. Joyce to co-chair House Nursing Caucus

U.S. Rep. David P. Joyce, R-Russell Township, announced he will serve as co-chair to the U.S. House of Representatives Nursing Caucus for the 113th Congress.

The caucus meets on a regular basis to discuss issues related to the nursing profession and help develop ideas and solutions to any challenges facing nursing professionals.

Joyce noted that his wife Kelly has been an Registered Nurse at University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center for 22 years.

“I’m thrilled to announce that I will co-chair the bipartisan House Nursing caucus along with Rep. Lois Capps, D-Calif. Our district has several world-class health care and research facilities including Summa, University of Akron polymer program, Cleveland Clinic, Case and University Hospitals and it’s crucial that these institutions have a voice in Washington.

“The nursing profession is especially dear to my family as my wife Kelly has been an RN at UH Geauga for the last 22 years and we've seen first-hand the critical role nurses play in their patients’ and patients’ families’ lives. I look forward to co-chairing this important caucus and working with my colleagues to address the needs of the nursing community.”
