Bureau of Hospitals

The Bureau of Hospitals (BOH) is a membership organization for AOA affiliated hospitals and their related healthcare facilities. All hospitals that are accredited by the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) or have osteopathic graduate medical education program are eligible for membership.

The BOH provides its members with an enhanced role in AOA policy and advocacy and better communications with colleagues and the osteopathic profession. It facilitates interaction between hospitals and the AOA and provides its members with input to the AOA policy and advocacy processes, in particular those relating to hospital accreditation and graduate medical education. The BOH also provides its members with the opportunity to nominate representatives to AOA bureaus, councils, and committees.

The BOH communicates with its member facilities through BOH e-Alerts related to topics of interest and also coordinates a continuing series of free webcasts related to a variety of healthcare topics.
