I am very grateful to my partners in the Hospital Associations for their enthusiasm and commitment to this important work."  

Art Sponseller, representing the three Regional Hospital Associations, added: "Our Regional Hospital Associations are delighted to join Anthem Blue Cross and the National Health Foundation in the development of this historic new relationship and partnership.  Our hospitals have always focused their mission and vision on providing cost effective and quality health care within the communities they serve.  To join in this new partnership with the aim of saving lives, improving the quality of care in a cost effective manner accentuates our common goals.  We declare our support and full participation in making this new venture successful and measurably effective in the achievement of these goals.  This mutual alignment creates a unique opportunity to positively impact the lives of the patients we all serve."
