Hospitals are anchor institutions in New Hampshire communities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Hospitals and health systems across the state have played a crucial role in supporting the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, enhancing testing and vaccination capacity while continuing to provide the lifesaving care their patients and communities need. The New Hampshire Hospital Association (NHHA) strives to ensure that all our state’s communities and patients have access to the high-quality and equitable health care they deserve.

Our legislative priorities maintain the following key principles:

  • Ensure patients have health coverage and access throughout the care continuum before, during and after hospitalization.
  • Ensure hospitals remain viable institutions that are able to serve their communities, today and into the future.
  • Maintain flexibility for hospital operations while mitigating burdensome and costly regulations.
