The Catholic Health Associations trustees approved the trade groups healthcare reform principles, though no date has been set for their release, a spokesman for the St. Louis-based group said.
The CHA unveiled a draft of its reforms in June seeking comment from Catholic hospitals and health systems. Proposals stressed prevention and called for universal coverage, but did not endorse specific policies. Officials said in June that the principles, once final, would set a standard for Catholic providers to use when evaluating policy proposals.
There are lots of different ways to get healthcare for everyone, said Sister Carol Keehan, CHA president and chief executive officer, in June. We are not wedded to one structure. -- by Melanie Evans
