Celebrating 100 years: A Continued Commitment to Health Care Advocacy
WHA is known as a leader in health care advocacy, providing expert input to federal and state policymakers that helps inform sound policy. To help honor WHA’s 100th year, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers issued a special commendation praising the organization and its members for this advocacy work, including the following language:
, WHA has and continues to be an important partner in healthcare policymaking, and today, WHA’s role in improving patient safety and quality of care has grown significantly as members and staff work to recruit and educate Wisconsin’s medical professionals, as well as to support innovation and collaboration for hospitals and health systems throughout and beyond Wisconsin.
That partnership with policymakers happens in a bipartisan manner throughout each two-year state legislative session and annual session of Congress. And health care advocacy will continue to be a major priority as WHA begins its second century.
