COLUMBUS -- State Representative Al Landis (R-Dover) recently visited Union Hospital in Dover. The purpose of the visit was to learn more about the day-to-day operations at Union Hospital, in addition to discussing prominent issues of importance to the hospital and the effect those issues have on the residents of Tuscarawas County.

Highlights of the visit included a roundtable discussion with members of hospital staff and tours of various departments throughout the hospital.

"I want to thank Mr. Bruce James, Mr. Carey Gardner, Ms. Diana Boyd, and their entire team for the very informative round table discussion and tour," said Rep. Landis. "These types of meetings are imperative to understanding the needs of not only Union Hospital, but also the needs of the constituents they serve in the 98th House District."

Union Hospital was recently named one of the 100 Greatest Community Hospitals in America by Becker's Hospital Review.
