For 100 years, the Minnesota Hospital Association (MHA) has supported hospitals and health systems as they serve their communities and improve the health of their patients.
Minnesota's hospitals and health systems contributed more than $4.5 billion in uncompensated care and health improvement programs to Minnesota communities.
MHA has been selected as one of 16 national, regional or state hospital associations, Quality Improvement Organizations and health system organizations to continue efforts in reducing preventable hospital-acquired conditions and readmissions.
A first-of-its-kind study by MHA tracked de-identified mental health patients admitted to inpatient psychiatric units and found that 19 percent of total mental health bed days were potentially avoidable.
Minnesota's hospitals are working hard to deliver safer care, improve the patient experience and save health care costs. View this slide show to better understand health care spending and the cost of health care, insurance and prescription drugs.
The #HealthyMinds campaign will engage the public in a conversation about how best to address the state's biggest public health issue.
Learn how Minnesota's hospitals and health systems are working beyond their physical walls to strengthen the health of Minnesotans and our communities.
MHA was selected to participate in HIIN, allowing Minnesota's hospitals and health systems to continue efforts in reducing preventable hospital-acquired conditions and readmissions through an initiative known as the Partnership for Patients. Learn more.
