The Sisters of Charity Health System believes that health care is a fundamental right for all Americans and that our families and communities are stronger when everyone has access to quality, affordable health care.
We lead efforts and collaborate with others to urge elected officials and policymakers at all levels to find solutions to policy questions of importance to our communities. We educate about the importance of faith-based nonprofits to the common good, including discussing the work of grantmaking foundations and the philanthropic sector, including efforts to ameliorate poverty through health and human services and education programs.
We advocate for good implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, including increasing coverage and access for many while protecting the dignity of life. We urged lawmakers to work with the hospital and provider communities to ensure strong reimbursement for providers and sound health care delivery system changes. We share the good news about the community benefit of nonprofit hospitals.
