The department serves as CHE’s point contact with key legislative and regulatory stakeholders, and provides consultative services on the development and implementation of local, regional, statewide and national advocacy and political activities.

The department helps build enhanced/stronger relationships with external organizations, including other health care systems, Catholic Health Association, American Hospital Association, American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, other National associations, and pertinent public and private agencies in support of our advocacy plans. It also develops more effective partnerships with other national health systems that have facilities in states where our facilities are located to gain greater leverage regarding policy issues impacting the local facilities
