SDAHO represents hospitals’ and post-acute care facilities’ public policy interests and advances healthy communities through a unified voice across the health care continuum. Advocates help keep health care a top priority with state and federal legislators.


SDAHO offers education at all levels, from conferences and webinars to education specifically designed for hospital and post-acute trustees.


Trustees rely on up-to-date information on health care policy, compliance and governance. SDAHO provides trustee-specific publications to keep board members updated on important issues.


In an industry as complex as health care board members must be prepared to lead. By earning a certification designation, board members will have a solid understanding of best practices for governing health care facilities.
