Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center actively supports legislation that will help the hospital fulfill its mission to improve child health and transform delivery of care through fully integrated, globally recognized research, education and innovation. For patients from our community, the nation and the world, the care we provide will achieve the best: medical and quality of life outcomes, patient and family experience and value, today and in the future. As such, staff in the Office of Government Relations work in close collaboration with city, state and federal legislators to identify and advance legislation that meets this goal. Though we support many bills, below are our top priorities. If you are interested in getting more information on any of these bills, please contact Melissa Saladonis, Assistant Vice President, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-636-1853.
