The IHA PAC is the political action committee (PAC) of the Iowa Hospital Association (IHA). The committee was started in 1990 to promote and facilitate voluntary contributions from Iowa Hospital Association members to support candidates for elective office.
Monies raised through the IHA PAC campaign are used to support candidates seeking election to state office. The IHA PAC is nonpartisan and supports members regardless of party affiliation. The IHA PAC seeks to support candidates with a demonstrated willingness to listen to the perspectives of Iowa hospitals and champion the Iowa Hospital Association’s public policy priorities to ensure access to quality health care for Iowans.
The IHA PAC also serves as a collecting agent for the American Hospital Association's federal political action committee, which supports the election of candidates for federal office.
Having a robust political action committee enables the Iowa Hospital Association to fully engage on public policy issues to safeguard the interests of Iowa hospitals and sustain critical relations with elected lawmakers.
A strong IHA PAC ensures the voices of Iowa hospitals and health systems are heard.
