Lt. Governor McKee Statement on Changes to Rhode Island Healthcare System

PROVIDENCE, RI Today, Lt. Governor McKee issued the following statement on potential changes to Rhode Island's healthcare system:

"I am glad that Brown University is opening up a discussion on locally-focused options for preserving our hospital system. Rhode Island residents need a solution that will protect industry talent and jobs and promote maintaining health services right here in our state.

Several months ago, I urged Rhode Island to explore all hospital-related options that would support our state's interests and prevent a brain and job drain from Rhode Island to neighboring states.

Brown University's announcement today is an encouraging development in the effort to find a way to best improve our healthcare system in Rhode Island."
