MADISON - More than 1,000 hospital leaders, employees, trustees and volunteers, including from Monroe Clinic, participated in the 2016 Wisconsin Hospital Association's Advocacy Day event in Madison March 30. Advocacy Day is an annual event that connects hospital supporters from across the state with their legislators in Madison so lawmakers can learn how issues impact local hospitals and communities. The crowd heard from the bipartisan state legislative panel of Sen. Leah Vukmir, R-Brookfield, Sen. Jon Erpenbach, D-Middleton, Rep. Jim Steineke, R-Kaukauna, and Rep. Peter Barca, D-Kenosha.
