The following statement was released today by Chip Kahn, President and CEO of the Federation of American Hospitals:
Hospitals are committed to meeting the health care and economic needs of our communities, but the Federal government must do its part by providing fair and appropriate payments. The House budget proposal undermines these key requirements and jeopardizes hospitals' ability to maintain our commitment to our communities and our patients.
We look forward to working with the Congress to develop good public policy that balances the need to get our nation's fiscal house in order with the need to maintain our patients' access to essential health care services.
The Federation of American Hospitals is the national representative of investor-owned or managed hospitals and health systems. Our members include general community and teaching hospitals in urban and rural areas as well as rehabilitation, long-term, cancer and psychiatric hospitals.
