ROCHESTER, Minn. (KEYC) — For the fourth consecutive year, the Mayo Clinic has been named the best hospital in the nation.
Congressman Jim Hagedorn (R-MN) is showing off the hospital to another federal lawmaker.
Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) joined Hagedorn today touring the mayo clinic.
They toured some of the facilities treating wounded service members.
Rep. Scalise says he can relate directly with those struggles.
“After 9 surgeries after my shooting and literally having to learn how to walk again, it brought back some memories good and bad but ultimately important memories because it’s how I got to get better," Rep. Scalise said.
Scalise suffered critically serious gunshot wounds in 2017. He spent significant time in similar motion recovery facilities.
