Spring Policy Assembly

Our first Policy Assembly during the 118th session of Congress provided an opportunity for essential hospital leaders to engage with newly elected members of Congress and communicate the importance of key health care policy priorities.

Attendees built on thier existing relationships, created new ones, and educated lawmakers and their staff about the vital role essential hospitals play in their communities and in fighting the spread of COVID-19.

Members of America’s Essential Hospitals lead the way in providing equitable access to health care services. Help us tell the nation’s lawmakers we need their support now.

Who Attended

Hospital CEOs and other executive staff, government relations professionals, board members, and front-line caregivers who shared how essential hospitals break down barriers to care. Members were encouraged to bring clinical colleagues, including physicians, nurses, and others working with patients in the community.



Spring Policy Assembly featured member hospital leaders, staff experts from America’s Essential Hospitals, and more.
