CHA Troubled by New Report That Uses Faulty Assumptions to Evaluate Community Benefit Programs
Greenlining Report is Heavy on Political Rhetoric, Misrepresents Existing Law

SACRAMENTO (November 19, 2013) – 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.
