Texas’ teaching hospitals support federal and state legislation to continue the Hospital at Home program. Originally authorized as a COVID-19 public health emergency waiver and extended for two years beyond the end of the PHE in the 2023 Omnibus Appropriations law, Hospital at Home allows hospitals to deliver inpatient-level care in patients’ homes. Two THOT members — University Health and Parkland Health — are among the more than 260 hospitals nationwide that operate these innovative, patient-centered programs.
THOT supports introduced state legislation, Senate Bill 1156 and House Bill 1890, which would establish new state licensing requirements for federally approved hospital at home programs.
