Established in 1970, the Coalition for Health Funding is the oldest and largest nonprofit alliance working to protect health investments. Member organizations together represent more than 100 million patients, health care providers, public health professionals and scientists.
Created in 2000, the coalition is a broad-based group of hospitals, businesses, and national, state and local hospital associations dedicated to educating the public about threats to hospital financing and how these threats affect patients and their families.
Hospitals are in danger of being hit with devastating budget cuts that will significantly impact patient care. We’re fighting to stop it.
