Undertaking state and federal advocacy efforts remains one of the most important roles of the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association in meeting the needs of its membership.
ASHNHA monitors public policy issues at the federal and state levels that affect hospitals and nursing homes. The association takes action by providing comments and testimony to governing bodies, writing letters, participating in agency meetings, and developing collaborative relationships with organizations interested in Alaska’s health care industry.
ASHNHA members can participate in advocacy efforts in a variety of ways.
Health care will continue to be the focus of public policy debate and ASHNHA will continue to be a strong voice for our members.
