Working for California’s Health
Hospitals and health systems across the state benefit from membership in the California Hospital Association (CHA) and their Regional Association: the Hospital Council of Northern and Central California, Hospital Association of Southern California (HASC) or Hospital Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties (HASD&IC). These organizations work together in coordinated representation and advocacy, with shared resources and operational efficiency.
CHA is responsible for state and federal policies, issues, regulations and relationships.
Quality and Patient Safety Focus
The Hospital Quality Institute (HQI) implements all quality and patient safety programs on behalf of the associations.
The associations and HQI support and assist each other in efforts to achieve goals approved through their various policymaking mechanisms. Each association adopts coordinated, congruent priorities and goals.
