Children's Hospitals Call on Congress to Prioritize Children's Health
WASHINGTON, D.C. — COVID-19 has affected everyone in America, including the children's hospitals and their staff on the frontlines for our most vulnerable kids. New waves of the pandemic are resulting in additional revenue damages. A growing number of children are becoming infected and long-term mental and behavioral impacts on kids is a major concern.
We owe it to our children to ensure that they will have access to care when they need it. That's why pediatric providers are calling on Congress to step up and support children's hospitals and ensure that programs critical to kids' access to care, like Medicaid, remain strong.
