To Governor Tom Wolf, Attorney General Josh Shapiro and the General Assembly:

UPMC and Allegheny Health Network facilities were built on the backs of our residents through our dollars and their exemptions from taxes as non-profits. But after June 30, many Western PA residents will be shut out of one of our regional health care networks. Seniors and cancer patients are just the latest to be held hostage by the “divorce” of our local health care giants.

We have reached the point at which local residents are at risk of permanent harm, and where Western PA residents are second-class citizens of our Commonwealth deprived of the freedom of choice of provider enjoyed in the rest of the state. Action must be taken.  

We believe that every local resident deserves access to the hospitals and doctors that serve them best, regardless of their insurer.

These entities must be held to their commitments as tax-exempt “charities” to serve the public.

We urge you to ACT to protect health care access for our families and neighbors.
