For Immediate Release:
Statement by Bea Grause, President of HANYS, Regarding Governor Cuomo’s 2018 State of the State Address
HANYS shares Governor Cuomo's pride in our healthcare system and his vision for improving the health of all New Yorkers.
We are pleased that the Governor has pledged to continue and expand the state’s investment in the areas of opioid addiction treatment, telemedicine, and rural health.
We also stand with the Governor in opposition to federal policies that will reduce healthcare coverage for consumers and reimbursement for providers.
New York State made the largest five-year gain of all 50 states in the 2017 America's Health Rankings report. We refuse to allow short-sighted federal policies to undermine this remarkable progress.
HANYS looks forward to continuing our work with the Governor, state legislative leaders, and other partners to improve healthcare and reduce costs.
The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) is the only statewide hospital and continuing care association in New York State, representing 500 non-profit and public hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, and other healthcare organizations.
