Working with Employees

The core mission of hospitals and health care systems is caring for people. To fulfill that mission, hospitals and health systems need compassionate, skilled, trained, and dedicated men and women who do the work that supports the mission.  Hospitals view employees and employee relations as a top priority and the importance of employee relations issues grows daily.

The AHA respects the right of individual hospitals and health care systems to determine the appropriate hospital-employee relationship for their organization and community.  In cooperation with the American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration (ASHHRA), one of the AHA's Personal Membership Group and the foremost authority in healthcare human resources, the AHA provides timely support for hospital and health system employee relations efforts through advocacy, information and resources as well as opportunities for learning, information sharing, and collaboration.
