American Hospital Association Annual Meeting May 6-9 in Washington, D.C.

April 06, 2018

The American Hospital Association (AHA) Annual Meeting will be held May 6-9 in Washington, D.C. The AHA Annual meeting provides programming and networking opportunities and an opportunity for WHA members to have their voices heard on Capitol Hill. In addition, WHA hosts several Wisconsin events during this time. WHA events include a luncheon issues briefing, a members-only dinner, and WHA-scheduled Hill visits with Wisconsin’s members of Congress.

Every year Wisconsin hospital leaders provide essential insight to their members of Congress during their meetings on Capitol Hill. WHA briefs attendees on issues and facilitates all Hill meetings on your behalf. This is a great opportunity for you to share your personal stories about how your hospital fits into the bigger picture of important federal health care policies. The best way for our Congressional leaders to understand how their votes impact health care delivery at home is to hear directly from you.

If you plan to be in Washington for the AHA Annual Meeting, contact Jon Hoelter, WHA director of federal and state relations, at or 608-268-1819 for details about WHA’s events. For more details or to register for the AHA Annual meeting, visit their website at
