Help the Texas Hospital Association support Texas hospital employees whose lives have been impacted by the devastating destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey. While thousands of our colleagues work around the clock to serve emergency response efforts, their families are being affected by this historic storm and flooding damage.

THA has created the THA Hospital Employee Assistance Fund to assist hospital employees who experienced significant property loss or damage. Please help us provide some relief to our colleagues.

We ask everyone in our hospital community here in Texas and beyond to donate now.

If you have problems with the donations form, or would like assistance, please contact the THA Service Center at 512/465-1057 or servicecenter@tha.org.
