Deadline Nears to Register for Feb. 26 Hospital Advocacy Day in D.C.

CHA is partnering with the American Hospital Association to bring hospital leaders face-to-face with their congressional representatives for hospital Advocacy Day Feb. 26 in Washington, D.C. To facilitate appointment scheduling, the deadline to register is Feb. 11. A room block is available at the Liaison Hotel for the night of Feb. 25. For more information, see attached flyer. To register, contact Megan Howard with CHA at or (202) 488-3740. In the coming weeks, Congress must address a number of federal fiscal deadlines. Hospitals remain vulnerable to payment cuts as each deadline approaches and compels Congress to make difficult federal budget decisions. It is important that congressional representatives hear directly from hospital leaders how these cuts would impact their communities. For more information on the hospital advocacy message and the potential impact additional Medicare and Medicaid cuts could have on access to hospital care, see Jan. 22 CHA Advocacy Alert at
