Rick is joined by Chuck Holland, President and CEO of St. Bernard Hospital in Englewood and Democratic State Rep. Juliana Stratton. Chuck and Juliana express the importance of renewing the state’s hospital assessment programs to generate Medicaid funding for safety-net hospitals.

Then, President and CEO of Haymarket Center, Dr. Dan Lustig, joins Rick in the studio to address opposition that Haymarket Center is currently facing over seeking an opiod treatment facility in south Wheaton.
