Policy & Advocacy
The Colorado Hospital Association (CHA) takes great pride in its ability to provide federal and state lawmakers with the tools they need to make informed decisions on the health care matters affecting their constituents. CHA provides legislators information regarding key subjects such as health care reform and its effects on both Colorado’s hospitals and the patients they serve. CHA also helps to educate elected officials about the important role that Colorado’s hospitals play in their communities and the many ways that state lawmakers can work with their local hospitals to support a healthier constituency.
