Founded in 1898, the American Hospital Association (AHA) is a not-for-profit voluntary association of 5,000 member hospitals or health systems and 38,000 individuals that are committed to the improvement of health in their communities.  AHA provides education for health care leaders and is a source of information on health care issues and trends.

AHA publishes a free information service called Trendwatch, which reports annually on U.S. health care economics, management, trends or market developments and governmental or regulatory influences.

A recently released report, entitled “The Capital Crisis: Impact on Hospitals” provides data from 639 U.S. hospitals, collected by AHA from late December 2008 through January 6, 2009.
