Sen. Lautenberg, a Supporter of Healthcare Providers and Their Patients

We at NJHA mourn the passing of Senator Frank Lautenberg.  He has been a devoted public servant to our state and is our longest serving senator in New Jersey history. He is also the last World War II veteran to serve in the U.S. Senate.  Sen. Lautenberg was always a supporter of New Jersey healthcare providers and the patients they serve and was always willing to hear our concerns over his many years of service as an elected official. He championed many consumer health issues, including efforts to forbid smoking in public places such as airplanes and even the U.S. Senate complex. He also was an ardent supporter and protector of prescription drug benefits for New Jersey seniors and the State Children's Health Insurance Program, which led to the NJ FamilyCare program. We will miss his stellar leadership, and we extend our condolences to his family, friends and his staff.
