CHA completes health care vision statement

“Our Vision for U.S. Health Care,” a set of values-based criteria for reforming the health care system, has recently been completed by CHA after months of ministry input and discussion. With health care reform continuing to register as the top domestic issue for voters, the Vision document will help the Catholic health ministry articulate its expectations of a redesigned system. For more background, read the article in the March-April 2008 issue of Health Progress“Our Vision for U.S. Health Care: We Can Get There from Here”. Through theCovering a Nation initiative, CHA works with Catholic health care providers and local and national partners to create the momentum for real, sustainable change in our health care delivery and financing systems.
