The Washington State Hospital Association is dedicated to transparency and the sharing of information. We welcome calls from reporters and can provide a wide range of information including:

  • Details on issues facing hospitals across the state
  • The economic impact of hospitals on their communities
  • Key data about hospitals (for example, number of beds, number of emergency room visits, other statistical data)
  • The impact of the economy on hospitals
  • The potential impact of public policy changes on patient care
  • What hospitals are doing to improve patient safety and stamp out infections
  • How patients can become active participants in their care

 Experts on our staff are available to help you understand the complicated world of health care policy. The Association is also actively involved in spreading the word about initiatives and issues important to Washington hospitals and the health of their patients. To find out more about recent projects, please visit the press releases page.
