The AHA represents hospitals and health care systems at a national level and works to ensure members’ needs and perspectives are heard in health care policy debate and development.

Representatives on the AHA’s regional boards foster communication between the AHA, its members and state hospital associations. The boards provide input on public policy issues, identify health care needs unique to each region and assist in developing programs to meet those needs.

“I love being an Oklahoman and serving the health care needs of our neighbors, and I’m honored to represent our community and the great state of Oklahoma on a national level,” said Voss. “I view this opportunity as a chance to make a meaningful impact on the well-being of our community. Sensible policy is a necessity in making sure health care is accessible for everyone.”

Voss previously served on the Oklahoma Hospital Association board of directors from 2019 -2023.
