In the coming weeks and months, the Illinois General Assembly will focus on issues of critical concern to the hospital community, including our top advocacy priorities: a Medicaid base rate increase for hospitals; enhanced accountability of MCOs in the Medicaid managed care program; and addressing workforce issues, specifically passage of the nurse licensure compact and legislation addressing violence against healthcare workers. How these issues will be resolved hinges on our collective effectiveness in reaching legislators with our key messages and our strong, unified voice.

Hospital Advocacy Day is a great opportunity for hospital and health system leaders to meet face-to-face with your legislators and share how legislation will impact your organization and the patients you serve.
