The Medical Alley Association’s Statement on the State of Minnesota’s Creation of a Healthcare Response Account and a Provider Grant Program

March 19  

The Medical Alley Association applauds the swift action taken by Minnesota’s legislators to aggressively address the COVID-19 crisis, empowering our healthcare community to do the necessary work to protect and care for our citizens, by creating a healthcare response account and provider grant program. On behalf of the more than 600 health technology and care organizations that make up the Medical Alley Association, we thank legislators for their dedication and support for Minnesotans in this time of great need. 

This unprecedented pandemic requires our healthcare providers to take on large, unanticipated costs. With the passage of these measures, Minnesota lawmakers are addressing the magnitude of this challenge, enabling our world-class healthcare providers to focus on what matters — bringing the best solutions directly to the patients who need them most.

”Medical Alley was made for this moment. When the world faces unprecedented healthcare challenges, Medical Alley delivers,” said Shaye Mandle, President and CEO of the Medical Alley Association. “Medical Alley’s global leadership position includes the strong partnership between the private and public sectors. We will continue to work closely with our members and our elected officials to ensure that Minnesota remains well positioned to tackle this pandemic.”
