Advocacy

State advocacy

As the primary voice of the hospital community in South Carolina, SCHA plays a central role in influencing the public policy environment at the state level. We seek to promote responsible public policy, encourage public accountability, and foster an appropriate balance between those who provide and those who pay for health care services. While SCHA is also involved in advocacy at the federal level, those efforts are more often in partnership with the American Hospital Association and hospital associations in other states.
