The American Hospital Association (AHA) is the national organization that represents and serves all types of hospitals, health care networks, and their patients and communities. Close to 5,000 hospitals, health care systems, networks, other providers of care and 37,000 individual members come together to form the AHA.
Founded in 1968, the American Society for Healthcare Central Service Professionals (ASHCSP) is the principal connection for central services and sterile processing, providing quality services, publications and information designed to help professionals excel in the field and reach their maximum potential. Its members include managers and technicians who are either directly involved in or responsible for sterile processing and supply distribution.
The Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management (AHRMM) of the American Hospital Association is the premier organization for healthcare supply chain and materials management professionals. AHRMM strengthens the nation's healthcare supply chain by providing leadership, education, networking, and industry-specific resources to advance the field and enhance the professional development of its individual members.
The Carolinas Center for Hospice and End of Life Care began in 1977 as Hospice of North Carolina. The more than 25 years since then have seen changes and growth in the organization, and in the availability of hospice and end of life care. Today, The Carolinas Center is the Carolinas' only statewide organization dedicated to improving care at the end of life in North and South Carolina.
Our purpose is to champion the highest quality end of life care across every stage of life, by providing leadership, partnership, education and resources.
