About AHA System Membership
The Section currently has 240 system members from across the country. The corporate headquarters of a multi-hospital system is eligible for system membership when at least 90 percent of its owned, leased, managed, or religiously sponsored hospitals are AHA members. The headquarters pays no additional dues beyond those of the component hospitals, and becomes a member of the AHA Section for Health Care Systems. If the total dues paid by the hospitals within the system exceed the AHA maximum dues for a single, freestanding hospital, the system is eligible for a system dues discount.
