Safety Net Hospital Alliance Launches www.safetynetsflorida.org
Date:3/24/2008

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida launched its new Web site today. The site includes general information on the Alliance and links to its member hospitals, as well as information on the hospitals' legislative priorities for the 2008 session, and news clips and editorials on related issues.

The site (http://www.safetynetsflorida.org) is designed as a resource for the public, legislators and their staff, and media seeking information about Florida's "safety net" hospitals and their position on issues affecting them, such as the Medicaid budget, the Low Income Pool, certificate of need, and graduate medial education, among others.

"With major budget cuts having such a dramatic impact statewide, it is particularly important that we provide policymakers, the public and our members timely and accurate information about issues affecting our hospitals so they can make informed decisions during this session," said Tony Carvalho, SNHAF's president.

The Safety Net Hospital Alliance comprises Florida's 14 safety net hospital systems: the state's six statutory teaching hospitals, six public hospitals and two stand-alone children's hospitals. The Alliance was formed to focus on issues specifically related to safety net hospitals and their role in ensuring that all Floridians have access to affordable, high-quality healthcare, regardless of their ability to pay.

The 14 hospital systems represent just 10% of Florida's total number of hospitals, but provide:
-- Emergency care to two-thirds of all trauma patients in Florida

-- 50% of the state's charity care

-- 80% of the state's graduate medical education

-- 67% of the organ transplants performed in the state
