Healthcare policy and funding continue to be at the forefront of public policy debate. Through NMHA Health PAC, New Mexico hospitals work to educate and support candidates who understand the complex challenges hospitals face as they strive to provide the best care to our communities.

Your participation in NMHA Health PAC helps us communicate to candidates for elected office the vital role that you and your employees play in our community every day. We cannot afford to sit on the sidelines while the future of New Mexico’s hospitals is determined in Washington, D.C. or Santa Fe. NMHA Health PAC sends a powerful message of unity on behalf of the healthcare community and gives us the opportunity to explain complex issues to candidates for election and re-election.

Hospitals and health systems compete with many other interest groups to have our voice heard in the halls of government. NMHA Health PAC works to ensure that lawmakers protect hospitals from policies that interfere with our ability to deliver care 24/7/365.  We also work with AHAPAC and the American Hospital Association to assist hospital advocacy efforts on a national scale.
By contributing to NMHA Health PAC, you provide crucial resources to help support candidates who and are concerned about the future of your hospital and the health of New Mexico. Take part in shaping health policy for our community and join your colleagues in contributing to NMHA Health PAC.
