Hospitals mobilizing to fight proposed charity care rules

New York Times, June 1, 2009

Hospitals plan to begin a lobbying campaign to prevent Congress from including charity care requirements in legislation to overhaul the healthcare system.

In a bulletin, the American Hospital Association urged hospital leaders around the country to contact Congress by telephone or e-mail.
