Health PAC Campaign 2019 in Full Swing; First Goal Achievers Announced
The 2019 MHA Health Political Action Committee (Health PAC) fundraising campaign among member hospitals began March 1, working toward the association’s statewide goal of raising $400,000.
Health PAC funding is one of the most critical tools used to assist in ensuring that the hospital community has access to elected officials in Lansing and Washington, DC. Contributions to Health PAC have assisted the MHA in keeping the visibility of critical hospital-related funding in the legislative priorities for fiscal year 2020 budget. It is imperative that we keep this momentum going by having full participation by all MHA members as the association works to maintain funding for healthcare and promotes initiatives that will help hospitals and the patients they serve.
More than a month into the campaign, the MHA Health PAC Board has announced that Eaton Rapids Medical Center; Harbor Beach Community Hospital; Hills & Dales General Hospital, Cass City; Hillsdale Hospital; Hospital Council of East Central Michigan, Bay City; Marlette Regional Hospital; McLaren Port Huron; Michigan Health & Hospital Association, Okemos; MidMichigan Health, Midland; Scheurer Hospital, Pigeon; St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea; UP Health System – Bell, Ishpeming; and War Memorial Hospital, Sault Ste. Marie, are the first MHA members to meet their organizations’ Health PAC goals.
The MHA Board of Trustees has requested that each hospital and health system conduct a Health PAC fundraising campaign. Hospitals that wish to have the MHA conduct their campaign should complete the Mailing Service Form and return it to Stacy Dowdy at the MHA. As the June 3 deadline for completion approaches, hospitals that have not yet done so are encouraged to begin their local Health PAC fundraising campaigns immediately.
For general campaign information, materials and updates about goal achievers and individual club members, visit the Health PAC website. Members with questions should contact Stacy Dowdy at the MHA.
