On Sept. 15, CHA sent letters to California’s Health and Human Services Secretary and Attorney General.  

The letter to Dr. Mark Ghaly asks for direct and immediate relief from the California Department of Public Health to mitigate the workforce challenges hospitals are facing during this surge.  

The letter to Attorney General Rob Bonta asks that his office use its resources and expertise to promptly investigate concerns around skyrocketing prices charged by staffing agencies and act accordingly on their findings.
