Advocacy mission statement

ASHE represents professionals who design, build, and operate hospitals and other health care facilities. The ASHE advocacy team works to monitor and unify the many overlapping codes and standards regulating the health care physical environment. Revamping codes—and reducing code conflicts—allows health care facilities to optimize their physical environment and focus more of their valuable resources on patient care. The team also advocates for ASHE members through professional development and credentialing opportunities, and provides up-to-date tools and resources to help keep health care facilities in compliance.
