Hospital CEOs and government relations executives from throughout California gathered in Sacramento yesterday to participate in Health Policy Legislative Day, CHA’s annual state advocacy program. The program included a full schedule of events, culminating with meetings with selected members of the California Legislature. Diana S. Dooley, Secretary of the California Health and Human Services Agency and Chair of the California Health Benefit Exchange (pictured at right) served as the keynote for the education program. Acknowledging the challenges of the existing health care system and the lack of funding, Dooley stated, “We have to rationalize and realign.” Additional photos will be published in tomorrow’s CHA News.
