CHA Troubled by New Report That Uses Faulty Assumptions to Evaluate Community Benefit Programs
PR Newswire

The California Hospital Association (CHA) is troubled by a Greenlining Institute report on community benefit programs, to be released this week, that is heavy on political rhetoric and light on substance. The report relies on inaccuracies and faulty assumptions to criticize a program that is, in fact, a robust, effective, transparent partnership between the state’s not-for-profit hospitals and the communities they serve, including public and private stakeholders.

The report is a classic example of “a solution in search of a problem,” said CHA President/CEO C. Duane Dauner, as many of Greenlining’s recommendations already are standard practice and included in existing law.
