Texas Hospital Association PAC Endorses Rep. Chuck Hopson for House District 11
Austin, Texas – The Texas Hospital Association’s state political action committee, HOSPAC, has endorsed Rep. Chuck Hopson, Republican for Texas House District 11. One of the largest hospital associations in the country, THA represents more than 85 percent of the state’s hospitals and health care systems, which employ some 369,000 health care professionals statewide.
“Texas hospitals face numerous challenges in delivering care to our diverse, fast-growing population,” said John Hawkins, senior vice president of Advocacy and Public Policy for THA. “HOSPAC has endorsed candidates who recognize the importance of health care to all Texans, and value the role that hospitals play in caring for our communities as well as their significant contributions to the state’s economy.”
“Hospitals are major employers in the state, and workforce needs continue to grow as demand for services increases, especially among the elderly,” said Hawkins. “Sound health care policies will be more important than ever, and Rep. Chuck Hopson has indicated a willingness to work with Texas hospitals to address health care issues.”
The 33-member HOSPAC board makes endorsements based on a candidate’s position on health care issues and input from local hospital representatives. Learn more about HOSPAC at www.HOSPAC.org.
