Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA)

Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA)

The Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA) is a statewide trade association representing Nebraska's hospitals and health systems. NHA was organized in 1927 as a result of an informal meeting called by Miss Homer Harris, superintendent of Clarkson Hospital in Omaha, to discuss pending legislation which affected hospitals in the state of Nebraska. At that meeting, NHA was founded and appointed its first board of directors. Reverend Dr. Emil G. Chinlund of Immanuel Hospital was named president; Miss Blanche Fuller of Methodist Hospital was named vice president; Miss Ida Isaacson of Evangelical Covenant was named secretary and Miss Homer Harris was named treasurer.
