Key Policy Areas of Focus
Our advocacy is rooted in the belief that adequate health care coverage is a basic human need required for people to flourish. In addition, we hold fast to the idea that, pragmatically, acess to coverage and care allows people to use the health care system more effectively, leading to increased provider and payer accountability, lower costs, a healthier population and a more vibrant economy.
The Common Good as outlined by our Catholic Social Teaching reflects the concept that the human person is inherently social. Living in community and as a part of an interconnected network of relationships, all persons have an obligation to foster that which is good, not only for oneself, but also for the good of all. Trinity Health is called to further aspirational principles that advance human dignity and the capacity of individuals to grow in community.
