AHHA provides member with the latest federal updates through relationships with the American Hospital Association (AHA), the American Health Care Association (AHCA), and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC).

Federal Letters and Comments

Please note: The Alaska Hospital & Healthcare Association (AHHA) was formerly the Alaska State Hospital & Nursing Home Association (ASHNHA). In May, 2022, the board passed a resolution to change the association's name in an effort to adopt a more inclusive, concise, and relevant title to represent our members and mission. Many of the resources listed on this page still have the ASHNHA title and references.
