CON Policy Services

Cat Scan

After many years of working to meet the requirements to initiate a fixed MRI service at Oaklawn Hospital without success, Oaklawn hired RWC Advocacy to work with them on a strategy to modify the CON standards to accommodate their needs and recently opened their fixed MRI service.

RWC Advocacy has a very strong lobbying practice, much of which is geared toward the Michigan State Legislature. Those strong roots in lobbying have helped develop just as strong of a presence with the Certificate of Need Commission and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services related to CON policy.

Melissa and her team have developed and fostered strong relationships with the 11 member Commission as well as key policymakers at the Department. Melissa is well respected by both and known for providing reliable honest information on very complex and controversial issues. All of this has resulted in great success on behalf of our clients when looking for policy changes, clarifications, and interpretations of CON policies.

After two years, millions of taxpayer dollars & multiple congressional investigations confirming there was no collusion, I’m pleased this report has concluded.

The Special Counsel finished his work without any DOJ interference, proving Democrats’ speculation was dead wrong.

Thank you to Childs Elementary School for welcoming me in to read to this great group of 2nd graders. #MarchisReadingMonth

Even a slight rise in regional temperature can have a large impact on our Great Lakes. So many Michigan families rely on the Great Lakes to provide them with food, water, and even an income. Protecting these waters also protects Michiganders.
