Statement by Bea Grause, President of the Healthcare Association of New York State, Regarding the Presidential Election
ALBANY, N.Y. – As a result of yesterday’s election, the healthcare sector in New York will face a significantly different landscape.
In this regard, HANYS has a long history of working with both sides of the aisle and will use that experience in working with the new Trump Administration as soon as its transition team is in place.
Our strong partnership with the American Hospital Association and state associations will be critical in protecting hospitals and health systems across New York and the rural, suburban and urban communities they serve. We will work with these key partners to meet head on any challenges to the Affordable Care Act, as well as budgetary pressures on providers, while striving to achieve regulatory flexibility across programs.
Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications
The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) is the only statewide hospital and continuing care association in New York State, representing 550 non-profit and public hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, and other healthcare organizations.
