For Immediate Release:
Statement by Bea Grause, President of The Healthcare Association of New York State, Regarding the Governor’s Proposal to Address Maternal Mortality
"HANYS appreciates the Governor's attention to this very important issue. Many of the components of this plan are evidence-based, team-oriented and have strong support throughout the healthcare community. We look forward to working with the administration to reduce health disparities and ensure that pregnant women and new mothers have reliable access to the highest quality care.”
“As part of this important effort involving maternal mortality, HANYS believes there should be a careful review of the key factors affecting overall patient safety. This review should consider the broader context of all that has been accomplished over the last seven years to lower cost, and expand access and improve the quality of care. A thoughtful and collaborative approach that builds on what we’ve already achieved could produce positive results throughout the healthcare system.”
The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) is the statewide hospital and continuing care association in New York State, representing hundreds of non-profit and public hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, and other healthcare organizations.
