Founded over a half a century ago, the Hospital Association of Rhode Island (HARI) is a statewide trade organization that assists member hospitals in effectively meeting the health care needs of Rhode Island through advocacy, representation, education and services.

About HARI

HARI ensures the needs and perspective of members are heard and addressed in state and national health policy development, legislative and regulatory debates, and system transformation matters.

HARI and its members work collaboratively to address issues impacting Rhode Island’s health care system. Issues include increasing health care costs, health care transformation, eliminating patient harm, rising medical liability premiums and decreasing reimbursement. Together with its members, HARI works to ensure that all Rhode Islanders receive comprehensive, high-quality care.

HARI works collaboratively with the American Hospital Association (AHA), a national organization that represents and serves all types of hospitals, health care networks, and their patients and communities.
