Our Advocacy Effort

Hearing from advocates directly is the best way to influence legislation that can ultimately impact hospital operations and finances as well as hospital staff and the communities they serve.

Throughout the 2018 legislative session, hospital advocates will have unique opportunities to share the hospital perspective with legislators in the form of IHA advocacy events. The goal is to utilize the knowledge and personal experiences that hospital advocates bring to the table, ultimately improving the outcome of legislative issues that are important to Iowa hospitals.

IHA advocacy events are the largest gatherings of hospital advocates, making them not only the best opportunity to be the voice of Iowa hospitals, but also a great chance to network with peers. IHA encourages hospital advocates to plan now to attend as broad hospital participation is necessary to make each event successful and effective.

Hospital advocates can register for all three advocacy days; they are not limited to attend only one event. There is no charge for attending IHA advocacy events.
