U.S. Rep. Ron Kind of La Crosse has been named chairman of the Rural Health Care Coalition.

The caucus is a bipartisan body of more than 100 House members whose focus is improving access to health care in rural communities.

Kind, a Democrat, was recognized as 2011 Legislator of the Year by the National Rural Health Association.

He looks “forward to the bipartisan progress we will be able to make as a coalition.”

“Ensuring access to providers is vital to the long-term sustainability of rural communities,” Kind said in a statement announcing his appointment.

Kind’s District 3 is home to 27 hospitals, 17 of which are critical access hospitals.
