Massachusetts Health Policy Commission Contracts FHC for Report on the Future of Community Hospitals

25-Apr-2016


In March, the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission (HPC) published a report that discusses the future of community hospitals in the Commonwealth, to which FHC was a contributor. The report, entitled "Community Hospitals at a Crossroads: Findings from an Examination of the Massachusetts Health Care System" describes the value these hospitals provide by offering cost-effective and accessible care to the most underserved populations across the state. The  publication highlights the challenges that community hospitals must overcome if they are to continue to provide services within our healthcare marketplace.

 

Since the publication of the report, the HPC convened several stakeholders, consumer advocates and market participants to discuss the challenges and opportunities posed by community hospital transformation. FHC continues to offer the HPC its support in the ongoing discussion of the role of community hospitals in the State's marketplace.
