Legislative reception a success; contact your legislators

Posted on: 4/11/18

At the OHA Legislative Reception are (left to right) Lanette Long, St. Anthony Hospital; OHA Board Chairman David Whitaker, chief administrative officer, Mercy-West Community; Rep. Leslie Osborn; Tammy Powell, president, St. Anthony Hospital; and Joe Hodges, president and CEO, SSM Health Care Oklahoma.
About 70 OHA member hospital leaders attended the OHA Legislative Reception and advocacy seminar on Monday, April 9, at the Oklahoma History Center. Because of the ongoing teacher walkout and large demonstrations occurring at the state Capitol, OHA made the decision to cancel Tuesday’s day at the Capitol. In spite of that, thanks to great attendance at the reception, many good conversations were had with lawmakers. If you were unable to visit with your senator and representative this week, please make a point to have a conversation soon to discuss key hospital issues.

Thank your legislators for the $1 cigarette tax increase and ask them to maintain appropriations to health care agencies this year and increase mental health funding. See the OHA documents for more information.
