This election year has been unlike any in recent history, and certainly the results will shape the political landscape as we move forward. But no matter who wins on Tuesday, our priority issues will be the same – advancing the transformation of health care, expanding coverage, protecting patient access to care, enhancing the quality of care and patient safety, and making health care more affordable. Our great strength is our common agenda. And no matter what the future looks like, the hospital and health system field is always stronger when we work together. As the voice of America’s hospitals, we will continue to make sure Congress and the new administration understand the impact of their national decisions at the local level. And no matter how the political cards are dealt, we’ll continue to work in a bipartisan manner to advance our advocacy agenda. Because better health and healthier communities are goals everyone can support.
