Hospital Association Opposes SQ744

Members of the Oklahoma Hospital Association today voiced their concerns about the potential effects of State Question 744 on access to and the cost of health care in Oklahoma if the ballot measure passes during the general election in November.

“State Question 744 threatens health care for many of the state’s most vulnerable citizens, including our senior citizens who live on fixed incomes, many of whom are in nursing homes, as well as the disabled and children,” said Craig W. Jones, president of the Oklahoma Hospital Association (OHA).

“The Oklahoma Hospital Association believes it is unwise to take funding away from much-needed medical services when Oklahoma already ranks extremely low in most health status measures.”
