Register for Hospital Advocacy Days This Fall
Health care leaders will take hospital message to federal lawmakers

To help spread the message that California hospitals cannot withstand additional payment cuts, CHA is partnering with its colleagues at the American Hospital Association to host three advocacy days in Washington, D.C., this September, November and December.

Following the November elections, Congress will confront several deadlines for programs that will significantly impact hospitals. Tax cuts, the sustainable growth rate for physicians, sequestration and other deficit-reduction efforts will be on the table, making spending for Medicare and Medicaid very vulnerable. Hospital leaders are encouraged to participate in the upcoming advocacy days. Additional information regarding dates, times and places, as well as hotel reservations, is attached. RSVP to Megan Howard at or (202) 488-3740.
