Betty McCollum

Representative Betty McCollum

In September 2010, U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum visited Children's St. Paul campus to discuss children's health policy. She and her staff joined Alan Goldbloom, MD, Children's president and CEO, Clark Smith, MD, Children's chief of pediatrics, and Tom McGough Jr., president of McGough Construction, for a tour of the campus work site. They saw the transformation the hospital is undertaking, including the space that will become new operating rooms. McCollum and her staff also joined Dr. Goldbloom for a conversation about federal legislative issues, health care reform implementation and the financial challenges facing Children's as a result of state budget cuts. See more photos from McCollum's visit.
