Hospitals and health systems benefit from membership in both CHA and the Regional Associations. The Associations shape policies through a unified voice on health care issues important to California hospitals and patients. In addition, the Associations — with the Hospital Quality Institute — provide educational programs and operational support to members to improve quality and patient safety.
The CHA brochure and annual member value report provide an excellent overview of the services members receive. Below is a more detailed summary of the benefits available to our hospital and health system members.
