WHA, winner of the 2018 National Cooperative of Health Networks Outstanding Health Network award, provides collaborative business solutions and resources for locally driven healthcare. Its member-owned companies offer programs that result in better health outcomes for communities.

WHA began in 1989 when a small group of rural Colorado hospitals decided that there was power in numbers. Today, WHA has more than 30 healthcare members in Colorado and Utah. Of these, about two-thirds own Healthcare Management, a sister company of WHA that provides revenue-cycle solutions to healthcare entities. Developing and managing a menu of more than 45 member-owned and partner programs, WHA delivers an ROI of 36:1 on members’ dues.
