We Care We VoteAMERICA'S HOSPITALS stand ready to care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year ... ensuring that patients get the care they need when they need it. They are managing enormous changes as they transform health care delivery to enhance value and improve the overall health of their patients and their communities. But hospitals' ability to maintain the kind of access to services that their communities have come to expect is threatened. In order to continue this transformation, and to provide patients with the access to care they need and expect, hospitals need a supportive and modernized public policy environment. No one can do a better job of explaining the challenges facing health care than you. You are a critical player in our ongoing national dialogue on the future of health care in the United States. Your mission of caring and your place in your community as a trusted resource, and often the largest employer, means you have political capital. We must speak up now, loudly and often, because without our input, legislators will default to the easiest path, instead of offering real solutions to the health care problems our nation faces. Legislators and potential legislators need to understand the ramifications their decisions will have — not just on the future of our health care system, but on the future of our nation — for years to come. Don’t sit on the sidelines. Exercise your right to vote in 2016.
