CHA Encourages Hospitals to Participate in June 4 Rally

CHA is a member of the statewide We Care for California coalition – an organization that is coordinating the largest ever health care gathering on June 4 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the front of the State Capitol. With help from CHA members, thousands of hospital employees, physicians, dentists, insurers, hospital administrators, first-responders, elected leaders and others will gather at the rally to call on legislators and the Governor to restore $1 billion in funding that was cut from the Medi-Cal budget. The June 4 rally complements CHA’s public advocacy campaign to enact AB 900 and SB 640, which are aimed at reversing the Medi-Cal cuts to hospital distinct-part skilled-nursing facilities and other providers. 

To help hospitals coordinate their efforts, the attached event materials may be used for outreach and promotion. Also attached is a template letter, to be tailored to each hospital’s circumstances, for communicating directly with employees and encouraging them to participate. Depending on the number of people who register from a given area, buses may be available to help with transportation to Sacramento. Registration for the event is simple and online at
