AHA Special Bulletin: A Special Message from Rich Umbdenstock Regarding the Haitian Earthquake

We have all watched with great sorrow the devastation wrought by the January 12 earthquake in Haiti. Many of you have contacted the AHA to ask how you can help. Instead of launching a separate relief effort, I would like to encourage hospitals to consider donating via the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) or another well-established, private-sector relief organization. To donate time, money, supplies or equipment via USAID, please visit Inquiries related to donations should be e-mailed to

The compassion and generosity of America's hospitals continue to humble and inspire. Thank you for the work you do every day … for your patients, your communities and your neighbors in great times of need.
