Florida Association of Children's Hospitals Response to State's Healthcare Budget

April 30 2021 - The following statement is to be attributed to Florida Association of Children’s Hospitals (FACH) Executive Director Dana Ferrell in response to the state’s healthcare budget. 
“On behalf of FACH’s 15-member hospitals, their leadership and staff, and the children and families they serve every day, thank you to Governor Ron DeSantis, Senate President Wilton Simpson, and House Speaker Chris Sprowls for restoring the originally proposed healthcare budget cuts.
“The restoration of these funds means that Florida’s children's hospitals – the backbone of Florida’s pediatric health care system – will continue to deliver services, often below cost, that offer life-changing and lifesaving care for our state’s youngest injured or critically ill residents.
“Moving forward, we remain ready to partner with our legislative leaders on next steps to ensure that Florida’s children have ongoing access to comprehensive and specialized health care when and where they need it.”
