Missouri Hospital Association

About MHA

Since its creation in 1922, MHA has grown from 50 to more than 140 member hospitals. As a nonprofit membership association, MHA represents every acute care hospital in the state, as well as most of the federal and state hospitals and rehabilitation and psychiatric care facilities.

Dedicated to sustaining an environment that helps hospitals serve their communities…

MHA advocates for policies that improve health and health care in the state, and provides data, decision-support tools and operational resources to help hospitals and health systems deliver care. Just as our member hospitals have broadened their scope to embrace the continuum of health care services, MHA also has expanded its services to members’ needs and expectations throughout its history.

In addition to representation and advocacy on behalf of its members, the association seeks to educate its members, the public and the media, as well as legislative representatives, about health care issues.
