For Immediate Release:
Statement by HANYS’ president, Bea Grause, RN, JD, regarding restoration of healthcare funding in New York
HANYS applauds Gov. Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins, Assembly Speaker Heastie and all members of the legislature for demonstrating their commitment to healthcare. Their actions this week give all New Yorkers confidence that the life-saving work our local hospitals, health systems and other providers do every day in communities throughout the state will be supported in the 2019-2020 state budget. This support is especially important at a time when the federal government is proposing major healthcare funding cuts. We look forward to continuing our work with the legislature and the governor to protect and advance healthcare for all New Yorkers.
The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) is the only statewide hospital and continuing care association in New York State, representing non-profit and public hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, and other healthcare organizations.
