Congressional News Center

If you haven’t done so already, AMRPA encourages its members to reach out to their newly or re-elected Congressional representatives and educate them about the value of care provided in inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and units by offering them a tour of your hospital, meeting with them at their offices, or visiting with them during town hall or community meetings.

You may follow these steps to set up a meeting with your Congressional Representatives:

  • Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your Senators’ and Representative's office or access their contact information online at www.house.gov and www.senate.gov.
  • Ask the office for instructions regarding the preferred way to submit a request for a meeting or an invitation to tour your hospital or unit in the District/State. Congressional offices handle their District scheduling requests differently. The Washington, D.C. office may arrange for the meeting directly or may refer you to their Congressional District office to set up the visit.

Once you have a meeting or tour scheduled, please inform Kendall Hussey (khussey@akingump.com / 202-416-5207) so we can track AMRPA’s outreach efforts.
