A survey of the nation’s homeless in 30 cities has found that more than one in five visited the emergency department or was hospitalized over three times in the last year, nearly 40% had no health coverage such as Medicaid and more than one in five were living with triple diagnoses.

That’s the finding of the 100,000 Homes Campaign, a private and government funded outreach project that is seeking to, in part, reach out to hospitals and doctors to remedy the situation.
