The U.S. Senate is now going through 20 hours of debate on a House Resolution 1628 to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. But the House bill was stripped of every word except the title.

This letter is in response to the “fake news” reported by Krista Allen in the July 13, 2017 Navajo Times article entitled, “TC hospital flubs care for elderly Dine.” I want to correct errors from the article and provide facts about Tuba City Regional Healthcare Corporation and the rigorous requirements we fulfill to provide safe, accessible, quality, and culturally sensitive health care.
