Save Norwegian American Hospital!

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Stop proposed cuts in funding to Safety-Net hospitals like Norwegian American Hospital. Share the urgency to actively and strongly support legislation assuring that Safety-Net hospitals do not receive any reductions in current payments.

Why is this important?

Safety-Net hospitals like Norwegian American Hospital, are completely reliant on Medicaid funding from the hospital assessment program which is set to expire in June. Countless patients and employees depend on the services and economic activity created by these hospitals. We need your help to send a message to Springfield that any cuts to Medicaid funding will negatively impact jobs and patient care.

Reasons for signing

  • I was born in Chicago at the Norwegian American Hospital.
  • This is an important hospital within the medical community and serves to teach many medical students.
  • As someone whose parent depended on Medicaid to continue the care being received after personal funds ended, I totally appreciate the importance and significance of Medicaid and Medicare. We have a selfish, self-oriented mindset in this country that needs to change, for the good of everyone. Surely, those against assisting others today, will find themselves or a loved one, in need tomorrow.
