Florida alliance ramps up efforts to protect state funding to 28 hospitals

The Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida launched a website Sept. 9 to advocate protecting state funding to safety-net hospitals that have large Medicaid patient populations, according to TV station WLRN.

The website, criticalcarefund.com, addresses hundreds of millions in supplemental state funds to 28 Florida facilities.

"This fund has been threatened in past legislative sessions. So we want everyone to know as the 2020 session gears up that taking money out of this fund would mean state dollars stop following the patients in need of the most complex care. This website demonstrates those facts clearly," Justin Senior, CEO of the association, told the station.
