Healthcare Advocacy Days: HANYS and members urge action on key priorities
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Healthcare Advocacy Days. We successfully delivered our message in a unified voice during virtual sessions and member meetings with legislators.
This week, participants heard from key legislative leaders including Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D-Westchester) and the chairs of the Senate and Assembly health and insurance committees.
The legislative leaders expressed their sincere thanks and recognition for the efforts of hospitals, nursing homes and our frontline healthcare workforce over the past year. They voiced concerns about and opposition to reductions in healthcare funding, particularly while providers are still operating under an unprecedented public health emergency. They also provided valuable insights on the issues currently consuming the attention of Albany and the Legislature, in addition to their thoughts on HANYS’ priorities.
HANYS members are encouraged to help build on the success of this event by continuing their advocacy in the days and weeks ahead. Contact: Amy Nickson
