PRINCETON, N.J., March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "We appreciate Gov. Murphy's focus on good health by continuing

critical funding for key healthcare initiatives. It's vitally important that we maintain charity care funding for the underserved in all communities; graduate medical education to support the graduates of New Jersey's
medical schools who are the next generation of healthcare professionals; incentive programs that promote safe, quality healthcare; and care for our most frail individuals in nursing homes.

"But good health is not just clinical care – now more than ever it's about what's occurring in our communities. We applaud the Governor's commitment of $100 million to fight the state's opioid crisis and additional budget items that support good health not just in our facilities but in the communities where we live, work and play. We look forward to working with Gov. Murphy, his Administration and the Legislature to turn these budget priorities into actions that improve the health of the people of New Jersey."
