NJHA: Governor's Decision To Expand Medicaid 'Tremendous News'

Statement from Betsy Ryan, President and CEO, New Jersey Hospital Association

PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Gov. Christie's decision to expand Medicaid is tremendous news for New Jersey – not just for those struggling without health insurance but also for the state overall in terms of improved health, increased federal funding and the economic ripple effects that go along with it. We applaud the Governor for his decision. It is the right thing to do.

"We also commend the Governor for his continued commitment to funding hospital care in New Jersey, preserving current levels of charity care funding and increasing support to teaching hospitals to educate the next generation of healthcare professionals. New Jersey hospitals care for 18 million patients each year, deliver about $1.3 billion in care to the state's uninsured residents, employ more than 140,000 individuals and contribute $19.4 billion to the New Jersey economy. We're proud to be an essential part of the fabric of the Garden State and appreciate the Administration's recognition of that role."
