Rep. Steve Stivers, R-Ohio, recently visited WillowWood, a fourth-generation family-owned prosthetic manufacturing company based in Mount Sterling, Ohio, where he toured the facility and answered questions from employees, according to a company press release.

“It was a great pleasure to host Congressman Stivers at WillowWood, as his time spent with our employees was valuable,” Lisa Arbogast, the company’s co-owner and director of government affairs, said in a press release. “Congressman Stivers remains a great supporter of the orthotic and prosthetic industry. We look forward to working together in order to continuously initiate positive change that will improve overall quality care, assist small businesses and address specific areas within the Medicare program.”

According to the release, Stivers fielded questions on topics including tax reform, infrastructure investment, heal care reform, political polarization in Congress and a state ballot issue.

According to the release, Arbogast invited Stivers to visit the facility during American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA) Policy Forum in Washington, D.C., last spring. This was the congressman’s third visit to WillowWood in the past 4 years, according to the company.
