California Hospital Leaders Sound Alarm: Immediate Financial Relief Needed to Keep Hospitals Open, Caring for People

WHEN:          Thursday, May 7, 2020, 11 a.m.

WHERE:        For Dial-In Information, Email: CHABriefing@randlecommunications.com  - CREDENTIALED MEDIA ONLY

WHAT:          COVID-19’s Devastating Financial Impact on California’s Hospitals

WHO:               Carmela Coyle, President & CEO, California Hospital Association, Sacramento;  Scott Reiner, CEO, AdventistHealth, Roseville and Diane Hansen, CEO, Palomar Health, Escondido 

WHY:                COVID-19 has claimed the lives of more than 2,200 Californians, a tragic toll that could have been far greater if not for the women and men who put their own safety at risk to care for others. Now, California’s more than 400 hospitals are facing their own crisis – a deep financial abyss that will be difficult to overcome.

Hospitals are essential to California’s economic recovery. Schools and business cannot reopen, government services cannot operate and people cannot return to work unless hospitals are available to care for our communities. In this moment, hospitals need immediate financial support from the state.
