Why NAHSE PITTSBURGH
NAHSE’S origin dates back to the 1930’s when a group of black health care executives formed the National Hospital Association (NHA), an affiliate of the National Medical Association (NMA). In 1936 the NHA was renamed the National Conference of Hospital Administration (NCHA). After several changes in leadership, the conference activities were limited to one informal meeting held in conjunction with the annual AHA meeting. In 1968, NAHSE was formed and Mr. Everett W. Fox was named the first president. Today, NAHSE has grown into a premier membership organization for black health care professionals.
