Regulatory Issues

State and federal regulations have a big impact on hospitals and their patients. WSHA tracks rule making activity throughout the state and works closely with regulatory agencies and other groups to advocate for a reasonable regulatory environment. All statewide rule making activity is published in the Washington State Register.
