The Wisconsin Hospital Association knows hospitals are committed to giving their patients the highest levels of care. You do everything to provide them with the tools to take control of their immediate and long-term health care needs in order to live fuller and healthier lives.

As the legislature debates issues such as Medicaid funding, mandatory overtime and hospital regulations, the long-term health of your hospital could be at stake. By joining the WHA’s turbo-charged grassroots advocacy program, the Hospitals Education & Advocacy Team (HEAT), we can partner together to make sure Wisconsin hospitals, not legislators, shape the future.

The HEAT program provides you with the information, the insight, the strategy, and the assistance you need in order to help share the legislative issues that impact hospitals and the communities they serve. Expect Action Alerts on issues of importance. Watch for our Capitol Connection e-newsletter to keep you regularly informed of Capitol goings-on and how you can be active, informed, and involved! HEAT is specifically designed to facilitate your grassroots involvement so the voice of hospitals and their employees is heard loud and clear by the Legislature.
