Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle emphasizes importance of regional health funding

It's an idea to improve health care throughout our area. There is a plan being discussed that would create health agencies throughout the state to lobby for funding.  So instead of different agencies all making their own requests, there would be just one for each region.

Officials say this would help everyone from health systems to patients.

Tribly De Jung, FLHSA, said, “We're very excited about the leadership roll the governor envisions for us and very hopeful that with all the support we have in this community and statewide that we'll be able to realize that vision.”

The idea is to create 11 regional health collaboratives.
