“Well the purpose of my visit was to come down and meet with my employers,” Olson said in an interview with Juan Peña.  “Since I’ve been a Member (of Congress) I have done everything I could to get UTMB back up and running as it had been before the storm hit.”

Olson said he is impressed with the progress since Hurricane Ike.

“Every time I come back here, I see more and more progress,” Olson said.  “We are a Level One Trauma Center again.  And that’s not just big for the Galveston area; that’s big for the entire Southeast Texas area.”
