Alyssa Eller, Director of Patient Experience, and Holly Earley, Social Worker of Greenville Regional Hospital met with state Representative John Cavaletto, urging him to work with the Illinois Health and Hospital Association and the hospital community to support healthcare. They were among nearly 75 leaders of hospitals and health systems from across the state who were at the State Capitol in Springfield April 13 for Hospital Advocacy Day organized by the Illinois Health and Hospital Association.
  
During the meeting, it was pointed out that hospitals across the state have already sustained more than $1 billion in state Medicaid cuts and $2.9 billion in federal Medicare cuts since 2010.  At the same time, hospitals have been providing quality healthcare for their communities while working to transform the healthcare delivery system.
