The following statement can be attributed to Brian Peters, CEO of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association, following the passing of former U.S. Sen. Carl Levin July 29, 2021. Levin served in the Senate from 1979 to 2015.
The MHA offers our deepest condolences to the family of Sen. Carl Levin as we mourn his passing and remember his endless commitment to Michigan. He was an advocate for all Michiganders during his four decades in office. His support for the passage of the Affordable Care Act, as well as for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, has left a legacy where hundreds of thousands of low-income Michiganders now have access to care. He will be warmly remembered.
