Advocate for Your Hospital

Join your essential hospital advocacy peers in Washington, D.C., Feb. 27 – 28, at Policy Assembly. 

Policy Assembly raises the voice of essential hospitals in Washington by giving you the information and resources you need to win support for your health system and your patients.


New this Year

We’ve collapsed our spring and fall Policy Assembly meetings into one signature event, in the spring. This timing gives your voice — and essential hospital priorities — the best opportunity to make their mark on the legislative process as Congress develops its agenda for the year. We’ll give you tools to sharpen your advocacy message and opportunities to connect with other essential hospital leaders.

Meeting Scheduling

If you cannot arrange an in-person meeting that fits your travel schedule, we encourage you to connect with your congressional delegation virtually after you return home. For questions about scheduling in-person meetings, please contact Julia Grady, senior legislative affairs associate, at

Who Should Attend

Hospital CEOs and other executive staff, government relations professionals, members of America’s Essential Hospitals’ boards, and front-line caregivers who can share how essential hospitals break down barriers to care. We encourage you to bring clinical colleagues, including physicians, nurses, and other care professionals.



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