Why We Exist

  • An unprecedented 50% of the nation’s hospitals losing money from operations. (Thomson Reuters)
  • Trauma centers and emergency departments across the U.S. have been closing at alarming rates.
  • The burden of uncompensated care is growing, resulting in 1.) Decreasing resources and critical access to care for patients and 2.) The threat of less specialists and emergency providers who are able to care for all patients.
