Sisters of Charity statement about the American Health Care Act legislation

The Sisters of Charity Health System firmly believes that families and communities are stronger when everyone has access to quality, affordable health care. We are deeply disappointed with last week’s vote in the House of Representatives to narrowly approve legislation that threatens the health coverage millions of Americans have gained through the Affordable Care Act.

Proposed House action threatens health coverage for millions

Since the American Health Care Act was introduced in the House, the Sisters of Charity Health System has been clear about its opposition to this legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) because it would significantly undermine access to health care for many who desperately need it.
