MADISON (April 8, 2014) ---- Governor Scott Walker today signed into law SB560, a bill that will modernize Wisconsin’s hospital regulations.

Hospitals and health systems across the state applauded the new law, which will synchronize the State’s hospital regulations with existing federal rules. For years, hospitals have had to comply with inconsistent state and federal rules, making compliance confusing and inefficient.

“High value health care is a hallmark of Wisconsin. It is an exciting time as we move toward not only more efficient and effective care, but also more sensible regulation,” said Wisconsin Hospital Association Executive Vice President Eric Borgerding.

WHA hailed the two Health Committees for their support and acknowledged the dedicated efforts of the bills’ authors-- Rep. Howard Marklein and Sen. Leah Vukmir--for their leadership and commitment to reform Wisconsin’s hospital regulatory system.
