Statement From Florida Hospital Association President and CEO Mary Mayhew on Speaker Sprowls' Bipartisan Plan to Support Mothers and Babies

"Supporting new moms with critical health care resources during baby's first year is vital to achieving improved health and wellbeing for both mother and baby. On behalf of the Florida Hospital Association and our 200 hospital members, we are incredibly grateful to Speaker Sprowls and the leadership of a group of bipartisan legislators for their proposal to extend health care coverage for mothers for an entire year following the birth of their child."
