Hilltop Presents to Milbank’s Reforming States Group Steering Committee
Hilltop Hospital Community Benefit Program Director Gayle D. Nelson, JD, MPH, gave a presentation to the steering committee of the Milbank Memorial Fund-supported Reforming States Group (RSG) at their meeting in Chicago, Illinois, on August 27, 2014. In her presentation, titled Hospital Community Benefit: A Policy Lever for States, Nelson discussed hospital community benefit and the cost of tax exemption; using hospital community benefit as a policy lever; and avenues interested policymakers could explore with respect to their own states’ community benefit landscapes. The RSG is a bipartisan group of state health policy leaders from both the Executive and Legislative branches who, with a small group of international colleagues, have been gathering since 1992 to share information, develop professional networks, and commission joint projects–all in the service of bringing evidence to bear to improve population health.
