NHA Services

NHA Services, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Nebraska Hospital Association. NHA Services was incorporated in 1992 in response to Association members’ request for help in obtaining more reasonable rates on workers’ compensation insurance. Organizations and vendors partnering with NHA Services provide cost-effective solutions for Nebraska hospitals’ and health systems’ business needs by providing essential goods and services. Hospitals save money and improve efficiencies when using NHA Services’ partners. In insurance premium costs alone, Nebraska hospitals have saved millions of dollars.

The board of directors of NHA Services is composed of executives from participating hospitals and is designed in such a way as to allow it to serve members in a wide variety of roles. In designing its business ventures, NHA Services is guided by two precepts: (1) the ventures provide an advantage to the Nebraska Hospital Association members that they could not obtain individually, and (2) the ventures generate a flow of funds to NHA Services, which further benefits members by providing an additional source of funding for the Nebraska Hospital Association. NHA Services provides a number of services to Nebraska hospitals. For more information, contact Jon Borton, vice president, NHA Services, Inc., at (402) 742-8147 or
