The LHA strives to advance the health of individuals and communities by serving as the premier advocate for all Louisiana hospitals and healthcare systems. As the primary voice of the hospital community in Louisiana, the LHA plays a central role in influencing the public policy environment from Baton Rouge to Washington, D.C. From the halls of the State Capitol to various regulatory agencies, the Association seeks to promote responsible public policy, encourage public accountability, and foster an appropriate balance between those who provide and those who pay for healthcare services. This influential, united voice is necessary to achieve laws and regulations that are in the best interest of our healthcare institutions and the patients they serve.
This section of the LHA website connects members to information concerning the top issues that the advocacy team are currently monitoring in Baton Rouge and Washington D.C. These pages provide valuable resources and information that will help members stay informed about current healthcare issues that affect Louisiana hospitals.
