On May 26, 2022, WSHA sent a letter to the Office of the Governor and the Washington State Department of Health requesting that specific state law waivers and flexibilities be retained to ensure hospitals can continue providing necessary care in the next phases of the pandemic response. The letter was sent as a follow up on a May 20, 2022, meeting where hospitals leaders and operational staff shared their views on the most-needed waivers and flexibilities. The full letter is available online (Re: Priority State Law Waivers and Flexibilities to Continue) as well as the list of Priority Washington State Law Waivers To Retain.
