Memo

Gov. Brown to Speak at CHA Health Policy Legislative Day
Extraordinary opportunity to hear Governor talk about issues important to hospitals

California Gov. Jerry Brown has confirmed that he will address CHA members at Health Policy Legislative Day on Wednesday morning, April 6, in Sacramento. I encourage you to take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity to hear the Governor talk about issues that are important to hospitals. Please register for the program at www.calhospital.org/legislative-day.

In addition to hearing from the Governor, the morning program will include an update on CHA’s budget agreement — including the hospital fee program and seismic compliance — hospital-physician alignment, and additional proposed penalties for hospitals that violate the nurse-staff ratio laws.

The afternoon program will provide members with an opportunity to personally meet with senators and assemblymembers, and ask for their support of hospitals. Appointments have already been scheduled. Late registrants who would like to participate with other hospital executives in these already-scheduled visits may request an appointment schedule by contacting Amy Larsen at alarsen@calhospital.org or (916) 552-7508.
