The following statement was released today by Chip Kahn, President and CEO of the Federation of American Hospitals.
America's hospitals are the cornerstones of health care delivery across this nation, providing high quality, essential medical care to millions every day. Hospitals are keenly positioned to witness first-hand the scope of our nation's uninsurance crisis and how being uninsured creates intolerable burdens for so many patients and their families.
Today's decision by the Supreme Court to uphold the Affordable Care Act will enable millions of Americans to soon obtain health insurance coverage. This outcome also sustains the ability of hospitals to continually improve health care quality and transform the health care delivery system.
