Representatives of some of Minnesota's biggest hospitals and some of its smallest will be at the Capitol today to detail the impact of proposed budget cuts on their facilities.
Hospitals seek fair cuts
"A good share of that is just hard cuts," he said.
The nearly $10 million impact on ISJ is partly the projected increase in charity care that would be caused by Pawlenty's proposal to reduce the number of working Minnesotans eligible for subsidized health insurance and to cut access to services for poverty level medical programs.

Dr. Greg Kutcher, of Immanuel St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center, will tell of a nearly $10 million impact on the hospitals in Mankato, Waseca, St. James and Springfield over two years. And Lori Wightman of the New Ulm Medical Center will talk about the estimated $2 million blow to her facility.

"We've never said 'Don't cut us,'" Kutcher said. "We've said, 'Make it fair.'"
"As an industry, we haven't been as vocal as education or cities or counties," Wightman said. "We, as an industry, are just learning to be more effective in telling our story."
The representatives of the hospitals will be talking to House leaders and the media at this morning's briefing. It's part of a conscious effort to be more aggressive in getting their message out.
