Fighting for better health care

"As a nurse, I know health care is a right, not a privilege. That’s why I support the governor’s plan to cover every child in New York."
Aileen Gunther

Making health care better, more affordable

Assemblywoman Gunther is working to make sure our families have access to the quality, affordable health care they deserve by supporting the governor’s proposals to:

  • Cover all of New York’s uninsured children under the Child Health Plus program, after President Bush said no

  • Reform Medicaid reimbursement to account for treatment advances, freeing up much-needed money for preventive and outpatient care

  • Help ensure doctors are available in underserved communities through the Doctors Across New York plan

Fighting for nurses and patient care

With 29 years of nursing experience, Assemblywoman Gunther understands the unique challenges facing health care professionals and patients alike. That’s why she authored legislation to:

  • Restrict the consecutive hours of required work by nurses, easing their burden and ensuring top-level patient care (A.1898-B)

  • Require that a qualified nurse be present in an operating room for the duration of a procedure (A.1206A, passed Assembly)
