HCECM Hosts Successful Legislative Roundtable

The Hospital Council of East Central Michigan (HCECM) hosted its Spring Legislative Roundtable on March 8, 2019, at the Courtyard Marriot - Bay City.

“We were very pleased with our March Legislative Roundtable,” reports Janet Herbert, HCECM President. “It was exciting to see so many representatives from the state and federal legislative branches in our 15 county region take time out of their busy schedules to attend our event and share time with the CEO’s from our member hospitals.  The audience members gained valuable information about the challenges that healthcare providers are currently facing.”

The event included presentations from three of our member hospital CEO’s who shared an overview of critical issues in healthcare today. Presenters included Jean Anthony, President and CEO of Hills and Dales Hospital, emphasizing the benefits of the 340B Drug Pricing Program for eligible providers such as Critical Access Hospitals (CAH), Disproportionate Share Hospitals (DSH), and Sole Community Hospitals (SCH), etc.; Terrance Lerash, President and CEO of Scheurer Hospital, focusing on facts and issues for legislators to consider when voting on proposed Auto No-Fault reform that may negatively affect Michigan residents critically injured in an auto accident; and Steve Barnett, President and CEO of McKenzie Health System, highlighting the need for the state to fund healthcare at cost for the CAH segment of the hospital community to ensure that access to care in rural communities is maintained.

Valuable discussion occurred as those in attendance asked questions and shared perspectives of what is most important for Michigan residents in our region and the organizations that are working hard to maintain access to healthcare in our 15 county region.

A special thank you to all our Legislators and CEO’s who were in attendance. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to share valuable healthcare information that contributes to informed decisions being made by our elected officials.
