Sen. Murray honored by Bailey-Boushay House

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Bailey-Boushay House honored State Senator Ed Murray as the recipient of the Bailey-Boushay House Citizenship Award during a reception at the Pacini Lubel Gallery in Seattle July 16. Murray was recognized for his leadership in securing state funding for Bailey-Boushay House outpatient programs to serve people with HIV/AIDS.

Bailey-Boushay House's outpatient program receives funding support from Medicaid, public and private grants and fundraising. In early 2009, Medicaid funding was threatened with elimination. The funding, according to a BBH press release, represents 60 percent of the program revenue. Sen. Murray led the effort to ensure BBH's outpatient programs continued to receive the funding necessary to serve those with HIV/AIDS.

"Because of Sen. Murray's support and leadership, Bailey-Boushay continues to be here for our neighbors and friends who need us the most," said Brian Knowles, executive director of Bailey-Boushay House. "I am deeply thankful for Sen. Murray's work in keeping our outpatient program viable and able to continue as a vital healthcare provider in our community."

Murray has been a member of the Washington State Legislature for 14 years, representing the 43rd District, which includes the Seattle neighborhoods of Capitol Hill, First Hill, Freemont, and the University District, to name a few. He is currently caucus chair for the Senate Democrats. Murray also serves on the Ways and Means, Health Care and Rules committees.

Bailey-Boushay House, opened in 1992, is America's first skilled nursing facility planned, funded, built and staffed to meet the needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. The nationally recognized facility provides care for people living with HIV/AIDS and other complex, life-threatening diseases, promoting their health, wellbeing and functional independence. Bailey-Boushay House is operated by Virginia Mason Medical Center. For more information, visit www.Bailey-Boushay.org.
