The Montana Hospital Association (MHA) is the principal advocate for the state’s healthcare providers and the communities they serve. MHA provides federal, state and local officials with the information they need to make informed decisions on rural healthcare matters, so that MHA members can continue to fulfill their mission of improving the health status of all Montanans.

The MHA Board of Trustees determines the association’s public policy agenda based on input from member representatives, including through MHA councils, committees and task forces. The agenda reflects MHA’s membership, which includes organizations that provide hospital, nursing facility, physician, home health, hospice and other health services.
