This report explores how participation in AHE professional membership has driven the performance and career advancement of our members.

Health Care Environmental Services

The environmental services (EVS) team takes primary responsibility for maintaining clean and safe health care environments, a role that should not be underestimated. Environmental services is critical not only to keeping a health care facility running smoothly but also to improving patient outcomes and patient experience. Frontline EVS staff interact with patients, family members and clinicians, often spending 12-18 minutes per interaction on a daily basis. Although they may never touch a patient, the work they perform can save lives.

The Association for the Health Care Environment

The Association for the Health Care Environment (AHE) is a Professional Membership Group (PMG) of the American Hospital Association (AHA).
