Following today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, AHA General Counsel Melinda Hatton said in a statement, “We expect that today’s decision will have practical impacts on hospitals and health systems, including on health care provided across state lines, EMTALA obligations, maternal health care, the clinician-patient relationship, medical education and access to care for individuals regardless of socioeconomic status. We are committed to helping our member hospitals and health systems navigate the evolving landscape consistent with AHA’s mission of advancing the health of all individuals and communities.”
