Human Resources and Labor

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 people who do the work that supports the mission. Hospitals view employees and employee relations as a top priority. 

In cooperation with the AHA’s professional membership group the American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration (ASHHRA), the foremost authority in health care human resources, the AHA provides timely support for hospital and health system employee relations efforts through research, learning, information sharing, product and resources, collaboration and advocacy. Below are resources from across the AHA that help hospitals fulfill their workforce planning and human resource needs.
