Florida Hospital Association President and CEO Mary Mayhew today applauded Governor Ron DeSantis, Senate President Wilton Simpson and House Speaker Chris Sprowls for a successful 2021 Legislative Session that focused on Florida’s health care future.
“The 2021 legislative session was nothing short of a resounding success for Florida’s hospitals and health care heroes, thanks to Governor Ron DeSantis, Senate President Wilton Simpson, and House Speaker Chris Sprowls. Florida’s leaders in Tallahassee provided a historic investment in the health of our state’s residents, extended medical coverage for new mothers to a full-year, protected our doctors, nurses, staff, and hospitals from frivolous COVID-19 lawsuits, and eliminated duplicative and burdensome regulations. As the economy continues to recover following the pandemic, lawmakers’ work ensures Florida remains an economic powerhouse for other states to emulate and a state that values the health of its people.”
