Hospital Leaders Urged to Attend D.C. Advocacy Days in February
Help legislators understand impact of cuts on health care delivery

CHA is partnering with the American Hospital Association to host hospital advocacy days on Feb. 13 and Feb. 26 in Washington, D.C. While the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 pulled the nation back from the edge of the so-called “fiscal cliff,” it only did so temporarily. In the coming months, the 113th Congress faces three looming fiscal deadlines that could critically affect America’s hospitals. In late February or early March, the country will face the need to raise the national debt limit; on March 1, the automatic “sequester” cuts from the 2011 Budget Control Act kick in; and on March 27, the continuing resolution that funds the government for fiscal year 2013 expires. CHA urges hospital leaders to attend an advocacy day and help legislators understand the impact cuts would have on health care delivery. Please see the attached flyer for more information about location, schedule and hotels.
