The NELA Healthcare Alliance held a legislative luncheon on Thursday, August 10, 2017, at Louisiana Delta Community College to discuss topics critical to maintain the stability and vibrancy of healthcare in our community.
Representative Katrina Jackson, Representative Frank Hoffman, Representative Jay Morris, and Senator Mike Walsworth met with 40 NELA Healthcare Alliance members to discuss and brainstorm critical needed changes to pressing topics that affect how healthcare is delivered safely, efficiently and effectively. Together, the group was able to identify areas of agreement and develop joint actions to address some of the healthcare issues in northeast Louisiana.
The NELA Healthcare Alliance is comprised of nearly forty diverse healthcare organizations in northeast Louisiana. Representation is from hospitals, long term care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, home health organizations and others who together, in addition to providing critical needed healthcare to community members, provide nearly twenty percent of all jobs in our region. These organizations have come together in an ongoing network (The Northeast Louisiana Healthcare Alliance) to ensure they can tackle the most pressing issues together, including workforce issues, networking opportunities, and pressing policy topics that warrant a collective action.
The NELA Healthcare Alliance would like to thank Representative Katrina Jackson, Representative Frank Hoffman, Representative Jay Morris, and Senator Mike Walsworth for their time, participation, and commitment to sustaining the strength and vitality of healthcare in northeast Louisiana.
