The NHA is the advocate for Nevada's hospitals, health systems, communities and patients before legislative and regulatory bodies.
We are a not-for-profit, statewide trade association representing 100 percent of Nevada's acute care hospitals along with psychiatric, rehabilitation and other specialty hospitals as well as health-related agencies and organizations throughout the state. Allied with the American Hospital Association, the NHA is an independent organization headquartered in Reno, Nevada.
Formally established in 1960 and incorporated in 1971, the NHA was created by hospital administrators to provide a unified forum for all types of hospitals to address such issues as reimbursement, worker's compensation, professional liability and continuing education, among others.
Over time, the emergence of major issues such as marketplace health care, restrictive government payment policies, inadequate funding for indigent care, and manpower shortages, among others, have continued to pose formidable challenges to the health care system.
