Political Action Committees

Essential Tools for Hospital Advocacy

Issues that have a direct impact on Missouri hospitals constantly are being debated. Together, we form the foundation upon which MHA’s member hospitals and health systems build relationships.

MHA’s political action committee, HEALTHPAC, is the most effective ways to ensure hospitals have a united voice when decisions are made impacting the delivery of health care in Missouri.


HEALTHPAC supports state candidates who understand the special role hospitals have in their communities — candidates who are committed to supporting a legislative and regulatory environment conducive to hospitals’ success in meeting their mission of providing extraordinary health care. It is one component of a broader advocacy strategy employed by MHA.

The MHA Board of Trustees governs the activities and funds of HEALTHPAC. The decisions on which candidates to support are based on qualifications, knowledge, sensitivity and responsiveness to health care issues.

Your Voice is Key

Giving to HEALTHPAC is the most direct way you can contribute to creating the right environment for hospitals to thrive. Your donation helps ensure the voice of hospitals and health systems is heard, loud and strong.

HEALTHPAC helps ensure the success of candidates who not only embrace the vital role hospitals and health systems play in health care and Missouri’s economy but also take proactive measures to make sure that role does not diminish.

Put simply, donating to HEALTHPAC is an investment in the future of hospitals, the future of health care, and the future of our state.
