Washington’s two major health systems have been hit by serious budget cuts that have caused chaos, and they are already struggling to keep their doors open.
The two hospitals in Washington’s capital have already filed for bankruptcy.
The hospital system has not had enough money to cover its staffs and bills.
And there are no new hospitals coming to town to fill the gaps, even though Washington’s population has grown by 10 million in the past decade.
It’s a situation that’s forcing some hospitals to close, and forcing others to raise prices and cut services.
For the most part, hospitals in this area have had enough.
But as the situation in the region gets worse, the number of hospitals is rising.
That means hospitals in the Northwest region are struggling to get the people who need them to stay healthy.
Here’s how the region’s hospitals are struggling.
In some ways, Washington’s hospitals were already struggling before the budget cuts took effect.
The state is in a financial emergency.
The federal government, in a recent agreement with Washington, has set aside $8.5 billion to pay for Medicaid expansion.
But Washington also has to pay a significant chunk of that money back, because it was not able to meet its Medicaid obligation.
Washington’s government, the Washington Health Department, has also cut its operating budget.
This means it has less money to operate hospitals and clinics, and it has to put that money into other things like the rainy day fund.
The amount of money that’s being spent on hospitals has grown.
The number of beds has dropped, too.
In the past two years, the amount of beds at the state’s five hospitals has dropped from more than 300,000 to about 200,000.
In addition, the federal government’s payment for the state has increased, which has also made it more difficult for hospitals to pay bills.
Washington state’s hospitals had to increase the number and number of staffs because they had to get people who were sicker to the hospital and then to the clinics, according to hospital officials.
So in many ways, the state is not only in a budgetary crisis, but also in a staffing crisis.
And hospitals are in a real bind because they are not able or willing to pay their staffs for sick people to be treated.
And so the hospitals are having to reduce staff and other services to make up for the loss in Medicaid funding.
The situation is becoming worse because the federal health law is not yet fully implemented, and that’s been the problem.
So we’re seeing the effect of the federal law on the state budget and hospitals, which are struggling, says Jennifer A. Breen, a health care expert with the Georgetown University Center for Health Policy and Management.
The problem is, they can’t pay for staff because they can no longer afford it.
And the state can’t keep up with what it’s spending.
The Washington health system has had a $7.4 billion budget deficit since fiscal year 2016.
That’s a big chunk of money, but it doesn’t tell the whole story.
The budget is just one part of Washington’s financial problems.
The other big problem is that Washington has a long history of paying too much to its Medicaid beneficiaries, which makes it harder for them to get care.
Medicaid pays for the costs of people getting health care in Washington, but in some cases the money actually goes to the hospitals instead.
It doesn’t go to the people.
So it’s hard for people who are on Medicaid to get good care.
The system also has a high uninsured rate, which is partly due to the cost of covering Medicaid enrollees.
The government has been trying to address that issue, but Washington state and some other states have had to do it separately.
The problems are getting worse.
The health care funding has fallen behind other states, so Washington’s state budget is growing slower than the national average.
And Washington is struggling to find enough money for the Medicaid expansion program that is being built out in other states.
In other states like Pennsylvania and Michigan, the Medicaid expansions are being built on a much larger budget, and those states are already seeing more and more people with health problems.
But in Washington state, the expansion is going to cost more and it’s going to be more difficult to keep up, says Barbara P. Cram, the executive director of the Washington Center for Children’s Services, a nonprofit agency that provides health care services to children and families.
So as the state continues to struggle to cover the costs and to keep the Medicaid enrollee population growing, the program is going away.
And as Washington’s Medicaid enrolles grow, the uninsured rate is going up, too, so the system is going out of business.
And that’s not good news for families.
That said, the lack of Medicaid enrolment in Washington means that children are going without health care, which means they are going to need more care from hospitals.
And then they will need to pay more to get it.
But for now, they’re just
