The Arkansas Hospital Association (AHA) serves as an advocate for its member hospitals, representing their concerns and interests to elected officials on both the state and federal level. Through the AHA, Arkansas hospitals present a united voice to lawmakers and regulatory agencies. Each year, the AHA represents members’ views to state lawmakers on dozens of healthcare bills through active lobbying at the state Capitol.
AHA’s legislative staff works year-round to provide a powerful and effective advocacy voice for Arkansas hospitals. You can make your views known to your legislators by using voterVoice, a powerful Web-based advocacy tool.
The AHA legal staff also works with legislative staff to represent the interests of hospitals before the Arkansas legislature, the United States Congress and state and federal executive agencies. In addition, the AHA’s office of general counsel serves as a member resource for legal information, represents the industry in regulatory hearings and judicial proceedings, and provides legal services and support to the AHA and its subsidiaries.
