Our political system is dependent upon an informed electorate. Health care has become a significant component of our economy and government budgets. It is important to look beyond media headlines and sound bites to see how policy decisions at the state and federal levels impact our local community.
That’s why MDI Hospital invites you to become a Legislative Advocacy Partner. Our goal is to bring the issues directly to you and objectively break them down to show how they affect our friends and neighbors and this community hospital organization. Our partners meet three or four times a year to discuss current issues that affect how this Hospital provides care on Mount Desert Island. We also send periodic updates on the status or progress of active legislation. On occasion we may ask you to voice your opinion directly with our elected officials to ensure they know what is important to their constituents.
Please consider partnering with us to cut through the rhetoric and find out how your action can help shape the future of health care in our community.
