28 Jun: Stack Bill Requiring Hospitals To Hold Quarterly Public Meetings Approved By Senate

TRENTON – The full Senate today approved legislation sponsored by Senator Brian Stack (D-Hudson) that would require hospitals to hold quarterly public board meetings with time set aside for public participation.

“Hospitals, especially those receiving taxpayer funding, should be accountable to the community members they serve,” said Senator Stack. “The board meetings required under this bill will ensure just that, giving residents more regular access to top hospital officials and providing them an opportunity to ask questions or voice concerns about care.”
