Hospitals and health systems are innovating and evolving to improve care and promote health, and the AHA is helping them with these efforts to advance health in America, said Maryjane Wurth, AHA executive vice president and chief operating officer. "Helping members on their journey to the future is one of the most important things we do at the AHA," she said. "At our core is our passion to advance health in America — in every city and in every town and community across this country." Wurth reflected on the one year anniversary of the announcement of the AHA Center for Health Innovation and shared a number of ways the Center has been assisting members.
