The US spends more on health care than any other nation and yet we have the worst outcomes and access.

4 out of 5 Washingtonians worry about being able to afford health care and 1 in 4 are forced to skip their medications, cut pills in half, or leave their prescriptions at the counter because they can’t afford them.

How did we get here?

The new documentary, American Hospitals: Healing a Broken System, takes a close look at what's been driving our health care system and its outrageous pricing, monopolization, and consolidation, and dares to ask "How can we incentivize hospitals to provide the highest quality care at the lowest cost?"

Join Equal Opportunity Institute, Health Care for All, Health Care is a Human Right, Northwest Health Law Advocates, Physicians for a National Health Program, and Washington Community Action Network for the Seattle premiere of the provocative film American Hospitals: Healing a Broken System and panel discussion to learn what we can do to improve the health of our health care system.

When: June 22, 2023, doors open at 5, screening 5:30-6:30, panel discussion to follow

Where: Seattle Central Public Library, 1000 4th Ave, Microsoft Auditorium on the 1st floor

American Hospitals is the latest installment from Unfinished Business Foundation and the creators of the FixIt series: Healthcare at the Tipping Point; Big Pharma: Market Failure; and Big Money Agenda: Democracy on the Brink.

Accessible by public transportation. Parking is available under the library. From the garage, take the elevator to floor 1.
