Betsy Ryan NJHA Examines Potential Taxing Not-For-Profit Hospitals

Betsy Ryan, President & CEO New Jersey Hospital Association, examines the bill that calls for not-for-profit hospitals to pay property taxes to the communities they reside in. Ms. Ryan explains that an established "Community Service Contribution" is preferable over court action because it will provide certainty, manage expectations, provide money into the state system immediately and avoid extremely lengthy and expensive court cases that will cost taxpayers more. 2/6/16 #606
