More than 84,000 people work in Kansas hospitals and health systems. We vote for candidates who support hospitals and health care issues. We will make out voices heard as we vote in the elections on August 2 and November 8.
Advocacy is at the heart of every service KHA provides for its members. Our efforts are focused on one unchanging goal, ensuring our hospitals have the resources available to meet the health care needs of their communities.
This section contains information regarding current hot topics relevant to KHA members on the federal level. 
Kansas hospitals focus on providing safe and quality care for their patients. Inconsistent interpretations of regulations by state regulators hinder hospitals striving to be compliant. KHA continues to play a vital role in keeping our members informed of new requirements.
Through your investment in the KHA-PAC, the voice of the hospital community can be heard in Topeka and Washington. Your contribution will support candidates who support hospitals and our mission of delivering quality care to our patients.

Get involved with the KHA Grassroots Program. Our online grassroots tool provides members with legislative information and action alerts on state and federal issues, and has an easy-to-use search for state and federal legislative and agency contact information.
