Plus: Jim Tallon on New York's model health care reforms; a hospital-based program offers family caregivers essential information and support; a new Fund report documents a dramatic shift in New York's insurance markets; the role of family caregivers in safer hospital discharges gains national recognition with help from the Fund; the annual Tribute to Hospital Trustees honors 28; the Fund gains a new senior vice president for program and two new Board members; and more.
