Save Our Nursing Homes Petition Signed by 10,000 Delivered to Senators
Louisville, Ky. – September 27, 2017 – Signature HealthCARE delivered the Save Our Nursing Home petition to the halls of Capitol Hill yesterday advocating for our residents. Over 10,000 nursing home residents, stakeholders and more signed the petition.
“We had a wonderful, honest dialogue about the issues in each of the Senate offices of the 11 states Signature operates. We then presented each Senate office with the Save Our Nursing Homes petiton signed by constituents in their state,” Kathy Gallin, Signature HealthCARE’s legislative director said.
Each signature to the Save Our Nursing Homes petition counts and is now in the hands of Congressmen.
With Congress proposing changes to Medicaid, the Save Our Nursing Homes petition puts real names to current and any future proposed Medicaid changes for lawmakers. “It is important for Signature HealthCARE to advocate on behalf of our residents, families and stakeholders, who would be affected by any change the Senate makes,” Gallin adds.
