This week I began my tenure as president of the Hospital Association of Rhode Island. I am honored the board of trustees has chosen me to lead a respected organization that is working each day to ensure access to healthcare for all Rhode Islanders.
As a state senator, I spent more than two decades working to improve the lives of Rhode Islanders. I believe affordable, quality healthcare is essential to quality of life. Hospitals serve an important role in our state’s economy and are key to a strong Rhode Island.

More than 12,000 nurses work in healthcare organizations in Rhode Island. These women and men are central to the caregiving team. Each year, 600,000 Rhode Islanders benefit from the expertise, commitment and compassion of Rhode Island nurses.
Staffing at hospitals is safe, and we have worked in recent years to make information about the care we provide more transparent to patients and families. HARI member hospitals recently posted nurse staffing reports to a public website, providing greater transparency and accountability.
