WASHINGTON –  Today, Congressman Brad Schneider (IL-10) released the following statement:

“The people of Waukegan and surrounding communities deserve access to the best health care services available. Recent developments at Vista Medical Center East have raised serious concerns and left me deeply disappointed that Waukegan’s top health care provider is falling far short in that mission.

“According to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), Vista’s level of service falls far short of basic delivery standards and has failed the community. IDPH has revoked Vista’s designation as a Level 2 Trauma Center, raising significant concerns about Waukegan’s availability of emergency medical services.

“Waukegan and our surrounding communities deserve better.”

“I will work with community leaders and stakeholders to ensure Vista Medical Center East and its ownership are held accountable and that corrective measures are taken immediately.”
