Northwest Medical Center Medicaid Expansion

Northwest Medical Center in Albany supports Medicaid expansion in Missouri.

The medical center's board of directors voted unanimously to voice their agreement with Democratic Governor Jay Nixon. The hospital says the expansion would reduce the facility's uncompensated care that currently costs $1.5 million per year. Northwest Medical Center Senior Marketing Manager Trisha Kellogg says increased hospital revenue will lead to job growth.
