Our Political Action Committee (PAC) supports candidates who believe in the free marketplace for healthcare and who champion the cause of physician-owned hospitals in Washington. PHA often hosts fundraisers in conjunction with fly-ins and PHA events to continue to build support for our industry amongst policymakers.

Regulatory Updates

Information and regulations are constantly changing and evolving as the Affordable Care Act and other laws are implemented. It can be difficult to understand how the new laws impact your hospital. PHA provides bi-monthly regulatory update e-mails and quarterly teleconference to keep you up-to-speed. Members may also submit questions online at any time and a regulatory expert will provide advice on how these changes will impact your hospital. Please visit to learn more.


The PHA Executive Summit is an exclusive, invitation-only event for member CEOs, executives, and physician-owners. The three-day Executive Summit includes educational sessions and social activities that emphasize one-on-one and small group interactions, allowing you increased opportunity to discuss ideas, share best outcomes, and create deep, lasting connections with your peers in attendance. 


The PHA website and the newsletter, PHA E-Pulse are excellent resources for finding recent news and information about the most current trends in our industry including press releases, op-ed pieces, and stories we have worked with the media to generate. Stay up-to-date on what is happening in the industry and on Capitol Hill by reading the twice-monthly e-newsletter, the PHA E-PULSE, and members-only email communications.

Public Affairs and Marketing

PHA can also help support you through media relations and strategic public relations campaigns. A group of public affairs and marketing professionals from member hospitals meets monthly by teleconference to discuss issues of mutual interest. Volunteers share important ways to reach out to the media, your communities, and stakeholders. If your marketing or PR personnel are interested in getting involved, please direct them to

Member Resources

PHA Waiting-Room Brochures are a great way to tell your patients about the advantages of physician-ownership of hospitals, the exceptional quality and value of your facilities, and to make them aware of the legislative issues that threaten our industry. Recently, PHA sent your organization a bundle of brochures for you to place in strategic areas in your hospital and clinics with important facts to share with your patients and families. The literature provides information that shares the success story of our industry. If you wish to order more of these brochures please visit
