A Message From Our President

We are thrilled to share with you the new website of the New Hampshire Hospital Association at nhha.org! After months of hard work and determination, we are officially launching our new digital platform that modernizes and enhances communication with NHHA members, state and federal policy makers, partners and the general public. This new site provides a much more comprehensive look into the advocacy efforts of the Association while creating a more informative platform for telling the impact and stories of New Hampshire hospitals.


This website was designed to offer a clean, modern design, easy navigation and helpful resources to be utilized so that as you engage in state and federal advocacy efforts, you have the best information to be successful. You will find a whole new information architecture behind the content sections of the site, and a number of interactive features for knowledge-sharing and collaboration. Looking ahead, as we consider all of the learnings from the pandemic and the new commitments we must make in these uncertain times, as the leading voice for hospitals statewide, we are excited to continue enhancing our digital communications to keep all of us connected and informed.


As this site is new, we ask for your patience as we spend a few more weeks migrating some critical content from our old website, making new updates to important upcoming activities, and fixing a few persistent bugs with our developers and design team.


In the meantime, we invite you to experience the new site and engage with its content, features and benefits. Connected, we are stronger.
