About

Mission

A unified Association providing effective statewide leadership to address health care delivery challenges affecting all Alaskans.

Vision

To be the premier provider advocate bringing unity to the health care community in addressing health care issues and to support our members’ goal to improve Alaskan’s health.

Welcome to the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association! Our mission at ASHNHA is simple: improve and protect Alaska’s system of care to ensure access for all Alaskans.

We are a unified association providing effective statewide leadership to address health care delivery challenges affecting all Alaskans. We believe this is best accomplished if hospitals, long-term care facilities, and health systems continue to be the anchor of health care delivery in our communities.

ASHNHA represents more than 65 hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare organizations who employ over 10,000 Alaskans. Our membership spans geographically from PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center to Samuel Simmonds Memorial Hospital in Utqiagvik.

We hope you find this website to be helpful. ASHNHA serves its members through a variety of services, including policy and advocacy expertise, behavioral health, education and training, quality and patient safety, and workforce support. If you need assistance, feel free to contact our offices.
