Health care has been and will continue to be the focus of intense public policy discussions, and OAHHS is a strong voice for members and the communities we serve.
OAHHS continuously monitors public policy issues on federal, state and local levels that affect hospitals and health care providers. We take action by providing comments and testimony to governing bodies, writing letters, participating in agency meetings, and developing collaborative relationships with organizations interested in Oregon’s health care community.
On federal issues, OAHHS partners with the American Hospital Association (AHA) and other state, regional, and metropolitan associations in representing hospitals and health systems across the country. AHA provides strong leadership in the development and coordination of activities in federal relations, policy development, education, research, and other priority areas.
