Hospital Council is engaging with member hospitals and other health care entities in the Central Valley to explore ways to support and expand equal broadband access throughout this portion of the state. Access to reliable, high-speed internet is critical to the facilitation of telehealth appointments, which will increase equitable access to health care and improve patient throughput.

The initial group has met and will reconvene this summer. Hospital Council is also sharing this information with members in the Fresno-Madera-Tulare-Kings section to assist in building a coalition of health care leadership.
