The AHA today urged leaders of the House Appropriations Subcommittees on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies to consider the potential effect their health care funding decisions for fiscal year 2022 will have on hospitals’ ability to care for their patients and communities and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and other ongoing challenges.

Among its requests, the association urged the appropriators to give “strong and favorable” funding consideration to the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education program; health professions education and workforce programs; rural health programs; Hospital Preparedness Program; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; public health and other health care programs.
