IHA Hospital Advocacy Day: April 18

Over the next several weeks and months, the Illinois General Assembly will be focusing on the state budget in the midst of a very charged political environment. In addition to the budget and Medicaid, the hospital community has several other key issues that need to be addressed this session. How these issues will be resolved hinges on our collective effectiveness in reaching legislators with our key messages and our strong, unified voice.

As part of our ongoing advocacy efforts, IHA will hold a special Hospital Advocacy Day in Springfield on Wednesday, April 18. Hospital Advocacy Day is a great opportunity for you to meet face-to-face with your legislators.
