MHA represents the interests of its members in the legislative and executive branches of federal, state and local governments.

MHA staff coordinate federal advocacy initiatives with the American Hospital Association. MHA also provides leadership in the Missouri General Assembly by supporting legislation beneficial to the hospital community, and opposing legislation that is detrimental to Missouri’s hospitals.


MHA members and staff meet periodically with Missouri’s congressional health staff in Washington, D.C.

In Apri and September 2019, hospital members shared information on various issues being discussed by Congress and the executive branch. The following materials were used to shape the discussion during the congressional health staff briefing.
