C4PC endorses Mark Hinton for Indiana House District 39. Mark’s experience in hospital management helps him understand what needs to be fixed in our health care system. He recognizes the urgency of changing health care policies in Indiana. From shortages of doctors and nurses in the face of an aging population, to restricted access to care, to the destructive impact of the opioid epidemic on Indiana’s residents, Mark will take practical steps to make needed changes.
Mark was raised in southern Indiana and graduated from Purdue. He was motivated to enter politics by thinking about the future of his 14-year-old daughter.
As a member of Indiana’s House of Representatives, Mark will advance access to care by supporting measures to expand Medicare for all Hoosiers. He has innovative ideas to use public schools as an entry point for children to receive comprehensive health care, and seeks to reduce the administrative burdens on organizations that provide reproductive health care and other health services to women. Mark also sees an opportunity to improve regulation of opioid prescribing through more integrated electronic medical systems. Finally, he recognizes the impact that shortages of doctors, nurses, and other providers will have on the state as a whole, and will work to address them.
Mark knows that unworkable and backward healthcare policies have harmed Hoosiers across the state. He’s the right choice in District 39, a leader that can make things equitable, compassionate, and commonsensical.
