POLICY
& ADVOCACY

ASHNHA’s policy and advocacy priorities are driven by a vision that every Alaskan has access to affordable, safe, high-quality health care.

ASHNHA is committed to creating and maintaining a financial and regulatory environment in which hospitals and health care systems can provide the right care at the right time. This involves collaborating with members, policymakers, and other health care partners. 

ASHNHA supports federal and state lawmakers with the information and tools they need to make informed decisions on issues that affect the health of Alaskans, and educates legislators on the important role that Alaska’s hospitals, nursing homes, and health care partners play in their communities.

ASHNHA supports its members by monitoring 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.
