California Nurses' Union Advocates for Setting Minimum Charity Care Levels for Non-Profit Hospitals

With much of the charitable care delivered in California falling on financially restricted public hospitals, the CNA has requested for stringent requirements for non-profit hospitals to utilize at least 8% of their revenue for the delivery of charitable care.
