The AHA thanks HHS for distributing additional targeted emergency relief funds to children’s hospitals on the frontlines in the fight against this pandemic. This funding will help ensure these hospitals have the resources they need to care for their patients and communities. In addition, we continue to urge the Administration to distribute additional relief to all hospitals and health systems, as well as those in so-called “hot spots.”
