Health care accessibility is a critical need for residents in the 14th Senate district, which is why Senator Emil Jones III (D – Chicago) opened the door to attract more medical assistants to the Roseland Community Medical District. The new law requires the Illinois Student Assistance Commission to consider giving grants to those attending medical assistants programs in the Roseland Community Hospital District.
Senator Jones offered the following statement:
“Several years ago, Roseland Hospital was expanded into Roseland Medical District to ensure a long term sustainable health care resource in the community. The growth of the medical district came with increased needs for our community that required action. By clearing a path to bring more medical professionals into the community, we position ourselves to have better quality health care. This is another step toward meeting medical needs in the Roseland community.”
