The Association of Hispanic Healthcare Executives (AHHE) was founded in 1988 as a national voluntary organization seeking to foster programs and policies to increase the presence of Hispanics in health administration professions.
AHHE is the first organization devoted exclusively to Hispanic healthcare executives and to the education of the healthcare industry about the Hispanic healthcare marketplace.
The East Coast Chapter of AHHE was founded in New York City in 1999 as a regional affiliate of the national organization and became the national headquarters in 2002. Based in New York City, membership has grown to over 415 individuals and 17 organizations in 14 states. In 2004, AHHE formed a strategic partnership with the National Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on Health which addresses supplier diversity and coverage of uninsured small businesses.
