End-of-Year Advocacy 2022

Congress has returned to Washington, D.C. to tackle a full slate of business before the end of the year, providing an opportunity to advance key priorities that support hospitals and health systems.

The AHA has urged congressional leaders to include a number of important provisions in a year-end legislative package to ensure that hospitals and health systems are able to continue their mission of caring for the communities they serve.

Please contact your legislators today and continue to make the case why additional support and resources are needed. You can use AHA’s sample messages to impress upon your lawmakers the immediate need to support hospitals and health systems. Lawmakers need to hear how managing the aftermath and aftershocks of the biggest public health crisis in a century has left hospitals and health systems facing significant financial and workforce challenges that are jeopardizing access to care for patients.
