Maine Gov. Janet Mills (D) on Feb. 21 signed into law the state’s supplemental budget, which includes $25 million in state and federal funding to support hospitals as they continue to recover from the extraordinary costs of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Investments such as these are crucial for essential hospitals as they attempt to stabilize and continue serving their communities after the pandemic. Recent reports on the financial and operational effect of COVID-19 on hospitals in Texas, Tennessee, and Alabama underscore the profound financial toll of the pandemic and support calls for long-term, sustainable funding for hospitals.
