The Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association (GDAHA) is a full-service not-for-profit association whose primary focus is to ensure quality health care in our area. We are recognized by hospitals, business leaders, public officials, the media and the community as the regional resource for healthcare information. We assist our members with ensuring the quality of care, advocacy, member services, data reporting, and health information technology (HIT). Currently, we serve 29 member hospitals and health organizations in the eleven-county greater Dayton area. Our hospitals have an $8.1 billion impact on our area’s economy and they employ 34,274 people. As you can imagine, local, state, and federal healthcare legislative activity has increased in recent years. We act as a determined advocate working to protect the interests of our members.

Much of our work in the Dayton region is a result of thoughtful hospital leadership. Our Board of Trustees and committees work with our staff to share common concerns and develop innovative solutions on a regional basis. With our partner organizations, we develop unique programs and services that have a positive impact on health.

We also serve as a central collection point for hospital data, which is used for the analysis of trends in healthcare services and the employment market as well as furthering quality initiatives.

Our Mission
To provide creative, innovative and value-added support to our members in their ongoing efforts to meet the region’s healthcare needs.

Our Philosophy
When individuals come together and consciously choose to share their talents and work together, absolutely nothing can stand in the way of them succeeding together.
