(Nov 17, 2021)

Time and energy would be better spent passing legislation designed to actually help Pennsylvanians, she said, not bills that decrease safety within our communities. Read more

Hearing addresses corporate consolidation of health care facilities in Northeastern PA

(Oct 18, 2021)

STROUDSBURG, Oct. 18 – Hospital systems consolidate for various reasons and, as they continue adapting to the changing market, communities are impacted. COVID-19 accelerated changes in ways that forced community hospitals like St. Luke’s University Health Network and other hospitals serving the Northeastern Pennsylvania region to change their business model. The Northeast Delegation Chairwoman, Rep. Maureen Madden, D-Monroe, hosted a House Democratic Policy Committee hearing in Stroudsburg Monday afternoon discussing corporate consolidation of health care facilities so that elected officials can learn more about the issue. “I’m so grateful to those who testified today so that we can learn and understand how we as a legislature can support our communities and health systems,” Madden said. “As a state representative, I have partnered with St. Luke’s to create a level of medical care that has not been available here in the mountains. It’s so important that when consolidation happens, we do it with this in mind so that we can maintain the high quality of care that residents here receive.” House Members in attendance heard testimony from two panels. The first panel consisted of three professionals who work in or closely with hospitals who commented on market pressures and why systems are forced to consolidate. Testifiers in the first panel included John Nespoli, President, St. Luke’s University Health Network; Read more
