Benefits of HANYS Membership


HANYS is a dynamic, member-driven association that brings together healthcare providers from across the state to deliver powerful and effective advocacy. Our expert staff, data resources, grassroots capability, extensive operational experience, best practices and political acumen enable us to provide our members the resources and guidance they need to lead their organizations and to positively influence the outcome of important health policy debates in Albany and Washington.

Members serve on our board of trustees, Healthcare Trustees of New York State's board of governors and on various committees, workgroups and task forces. These venues provide members unparalleled opportunities to network and exchange information with their peers, and enable us to incorporate their expertise and perspective into our advocacy strategies.

HANYS Membership

We offer three types of membership:

  • Institutional membership for not-for-profit, voluntary and public healthcare providers in New York state including hospitals, healthcare systems, nursing homes, home health agencies, diagnostic and treatment centers and other post-acute care providers.
  • Affiliate membership for not-for-profit health systems outside of New York state that have at least one hospital in their system that is an institutional HANYS member.
  • Associate membership for additional categories of not-for-profit healthcare organizations in New York state that are not eligible for institutional membership. 

All HANYS members are not-for-profit entities. For-profit partnerships and opportunities are available through HANYS Marketplace.

Membership is obtained at the organizational level. We do not offer individual memberships. Use our member directory to see if your organization is a member and if so, email our member relations coordinator Wendy Preedom or submit a request to sign up and access member benefits.
