For CEOs, government relations executives

CHA has issued an alert encouraging hospitals to urge their U.S. representative to sign on to a bipartisan “Dear Colleague” letter led by Reps. Peter Welch (D-VT) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA). The letter asks the White House to enlist the support of federal agencies to investigate reports of anticompetitive behavior from nurse staffing agencies.

As California hospitals face the worst staffing shortage since the beginning of the pandemic, it’s imperative that anticompetitive practices, including excessive pricing, are examined.  

Members should contact their representatives and ask them to sign on to the letter by Jan. 21.
