Governor’s Weekly Message: Improving Health Care Through Innovation

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Kent County | New Castle County | Sussex County | Date Posted: Friday, December 19, 2014



Wilmington – In his weekly message, Governor Markell highlights ongoing efforts to improve health care quality and lower costs in Delaware, aided by the award of a $35 million grant announced earlier this week.

“Despite tremendous strides to increase access to insurance and to develop better treatments, our health outcomes for many ailments rate below the national average,” said Governor Markell. “Yet, Delawareans pay 25 percent more for care and health costs take close to 25 percent of our state budget. It’s why I have committed to an innovative plan for a healthier state – developed by all parts of our health care community working together. And by winning a $35 million federal grant for our plan this week, we can now do the hard work of making this vision a reality.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
