The Value of Membership

The American Hospital Association (AHA) works for you, and with you, to ensure that:

  • Legislators see the implications of funding cuts to your community;
  • Policymakers understand the burden created by excessive and out-of-date regulations; and
  • Everyone realizes the critical role that hospitals play in communities across the country.

Of course, we're about much more than advocacy. The AHA is proud to act as a conduit through which hospitals share best practices and tap into resources and initiatives that advance quality and safety and improve performance through our Health Research & Educational Trust and Health Forum. We're also working together to transform the health care delivery system, preparing the field for changes on the horizon, as well as providing thought leadership on changes to come.

Collected here are highlights of our most recent accomplishments on your behalf, as well as other benefits of membership in the AHA.
