Advocacy - Together…We Make a Difference!
Undertaking state and federal advocacy efforts remains one of the most important roles of the Louisiana Hospital Association in meeting the needs of its membership. With the combined effort of LHA lobbyists and LHA members, the hospital industry has been successful in Washington, DC and in Baton Rouge representing hospitals and the communities they serve.
