STATEMENT ON PROPOSED NEW JERSEY STATE HEALTH PLAN ISSUED BY SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY HOSPITAL COUNCIL

 STATEMENT ON PROPOSED NEW JERSEY STATE HEALTH PLAN
 ISSUED BY SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY HOSPITAL COUNCIL
 BERLIN, N.J., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- William H. Waldron, executive director of the Southern New Jersey Hospital Council, today released the following statement:
 STATEMENT ON PROPOSED STATE HEALTH PLAN
 The Southern New Jersey Hospital Council, together with the New Jersey Hospital Association objects to top-down centralist planning in developing the proposed State Health Plan. While we support Assemblymen Sosa and Mikulak's legislative efforts to change the plan to an advisory document, we are deeply disappointed and frankly shocked that the process until now has been an express train with insufficient time allowed for input and deliberation. The current legislation calls for Local Advisory Boards (LABs) to be a part of the development of the plan. To date those boards have had very limited ability to be part of the process. It should be a democratic process. Any document that has suck major and far-reaching ramifications should not be implemented in such a short time frame.
 The Southern New Jersey Hospital Council, an affiliate of the Princeton-based New Jersey Hospital Association, serves as advocate for 17 southern New Jersey hospitals and the patients they serve.
