Advocacy
Print

Advocacy, whether state or federal, legislative or regulatory, is at the heart of every service KHA provides for its members.

 

This section contains issue briefs on current State and Federal Advocacy Issues that are important to Kansas hospitals. Each issue brief defines the issue, highlights the action needed and includes who can be contacted for more information.  

Get involved with the KHA Grassroots Program. This online grassroots tool provides members with legislative information and action alerts on state and federal issues. This tool also allows individuals access to policy information and has an easy-to-use search for state and federal legislative and agency contact information.

Advocacy is at the heart of every service KHA provides for its members. Our efforts are focused on one unchanging goal, ensuring our hospitals have the resources available to meet the health care needs of their communities.
Advocacy, both legislative and regulatory, is one of KHA's most important services to our membership.
Kansas hospitals focus their efforts on providing safe and quality care for their patients. Inconsistent interpretations of regulations by state regulators hinder hospitals striving to be compliant with regulations and requirements. KHA continues to play a vital role in keeping our members informed of new requirements.
Contributing to the KHA-PAC is Easy! Through your investment in the KHA-PAC, the voice of the hospital community can be heard in Topeka and Washington. Your contribution will support candidates for state and federal office who best understand the pressures hospitals face and support our mission of delivering quality care to our patients.
