Duffy to President: Critical Access Hospitals are Critical to Rural America
Leads Bipartisan Group of 45 Lawmakers in Appeal to President Obama
Washington D.C. – U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (WI-07) led an effort with 45 Members of Congress to ask President Obama to refrain from including arbitrary cuts to Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) in his upcoming budget request.
In their appeal, the lawmakers state, "CAHs play an important role in communities by providing access to primary, emergency, and acute care services. Further, CAHs offer economic security and quality jobs in rural areas across the nation. Budget cuts directed at CAHs in previous years have threatened their ability to act as a safety net for hundreds of thousands of Americans living in rural communities."
