In a hospital, the pastor is your pastor.
The hospital’s pastor is the pastor of the hospital.
And the pastor and hospital are the same church.
In a nursing home, the hospital’s director of nursing and a director of mental health are the director of the nursing home.
And those two directors, or any two of them, would be responsible for everything the nursing staff is doing.
They would be in charge of everything that goes on.
The nursing home is not a church.
It’s a nursing facility.
But there is a very strong religious component to that.
I think that’s the most common complaint, particularly in nursing homes, that they don’t have enough resources.
They have the capacity to put the most out of a hospital.
They want to give people more time and money, they want to get people back to a routine of care, but they don.
That’s a real problem.
The reason that I started this is because I’m a Christian and I’ve been working with some of these people who are struggling in the nursing homes.
So I’ve gotten to know them.
The more I understand them, the more I realize how much they value and value their faith and they want that to be the cornerstone of the life they lead in the community.
So for me, it’s a very compelling challenge, not just because it’s an incredible challenge for them but also because it speaks to the need in the church community to create the space that’s going to enable these people to get the care they need.
We’re talking about a community that’s not being adequately served by the state or by the federal government, which means the health care system is failing them.
It means the people that need it most are not getting it.
So to me, that’s a big challenge.
And that’s why we need to build this network of community leaders, pastors, directors, nurses, social workers and other community leaders that can provide those people with the services that they need to get better and better.
But it’s not just a challenge for a nursinghome, it is a challenge to the entire health care landscape, not only in nursing home care, which is a huge industry.
I mean, that is an enormous sector.
The industry is worth billions of dollars.
But if you go to the federal level, you’ll find that there’s a huge gap between what’s being done and what’s actually being done.
There’s a $5 billion a year gap between the amount of care that we’re providing and what we’re getting back.
And there’s no federal health care bill that we can pass to make sure that we get to that $5 trillion gap.
So we’ve got to build on this infrastructure.
We’ve got an amazing network of people, and we’ve been able to build it.
I’m just really proud of what we’ve done.
I really believe we’re going to be able to have a significant impact.
I want to talk about what’s in the new bill.
This bill has three goals, and the first goal is to make it so that every American has access to a full-day hospital in a rural area.
The second goal is really to make the rural health care environment more sustainable.
And lastly, the third goal is for the federal workforce to be more prepared for a 21st-century workforce.
Now, this bill is not perfect.
There are a lot of things that I want the bill to do, and they’re not perfect, but there are things that we need it to do.
I don’t want to overstate it.
There is a lot to fix, and that’s one of the reasons why we have this conversation.
But I want people to understand that this is a serious piece of legislation.
This is about what you can do with the health system, and I’m not talking about the health of your family.
This isn’t a piece of cake.
It will cost you a lot.
It might not have all of the benefits that you might expect.
But the people who have been working so hard and for so long, the people in nursing care who are at the top of their game, will have their lives and their livelihoods be impacted in this new environment.
So let me say this: I have to give a big thanks to everyone who’s stood by me in this fight.
So this is the most consequential piece of this bill.
It has been a great journey.
But now we’re at the end of it.
We are going to move on.
Thank you very much.
