Unifying Hospitals' Political Voice

In today’s political environment, there are more new legislators due to term limits, fewer legislators with in-depth knowledge about healthcare issues, more legislative proposals that directly and dramatically impact hospitals, and more aggressive interest groups competing for limited resources.The MHA Health Political Action Committee's (Health PAC) mission is to promote and protect access to quality healthcare throughout the state by supporting state and federal candidates who are supportive of Michigan's hospitals and healthcare systems.

As the 3rd ranked political action committee in Michigan in 2017, Health PAC supports hospital and healthcare-friendly candidates for office and helps inform legislators about crucial healthcare issues. Health PAC's mission is carried out through the collective voice of individuals within the healthcare field who participate in the annual fundraising campaign.
