Adirondack Health leader on SCOTUS
June 28, 2012 - Chris Morris
OK, one more Obamacare-related post, then I need to delve into some other news for a bit.
The following statement localizes the story a bit more. Here's Adirondack Health President and CEO Chandler Ralph's take on today's ruling:
"Today’s ruling from the Supreme Court affirms the extension of health insurance coverage to 32 million Americans, some of whom have been previously denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions. Coverage for all is something Adirondack Health has long advocated for, and no one should be denied care for any reason.
"The decision also means we must continue to reduce costs and improve patient care though innovation and greater use of technology. Adirondack Health is an early adopter in this area, and as our high quality measures and positive outcomes show, we are meeting these challenges with success.
"Reform does come with a cost, but cuts to Medicaid and Medicare cannot be so deep that they undo the progress we have made to become a more efficient, higher quality health care system.
"Regardless of where the debate goes from here, Adirondack Health will continue to provide sophisticated, quality care to the residents and visitors of the Tri-Lakes region. We must continue our work of strengthening the network of physicians and providers in the region, which remains a critical component of the health care delivery system.
"Adirondack Health will continue to partner with elected officials and leaders by advocating for those Americans who will still be without health insurance coverage. The challenge going forward will be to achieve universal coverage so that no American is denied affordable, quality health care."
