California Hospital Association Political Action Committee

Key to Better Health Care Policy


With every new member, CHPAC grows stronger.

CHPAC is the political advocacy arm for patients, communities, hospitals, and health systems. Together, we foster critical relationships with legislators by helping elect, educate, and build rapport with officials who understand the important role hospitals play in our state.

CHPAC provides campaign financing to officeholders and candidates who are concerned about and committed to better health care for all Californians, determining which candidates to support based on not only their qualifications, but also their knowledge of — and their sensitivity and responsiveness to — health care issues.

Your donation ensures hospitals and health systems have a strong voice when decisions are made that affect their ability to care for people. 

CHPAC is the political advocacy arm for you, your hospital and your patients. Together, we form the foundation upon which CHA’s member hospitals and health systems build relationships.
