The Washington State Society of Healthcare Attorneys ("WSSHA") was
founded in 1973. It is operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes, to
provide an opportunity for legal advisors in the health field to meet and exchange
information and ideas, to conduct legal seminars of interest to such attorneys, and to
provide a central agency for the exchange of legal information in the health field.
Membership in WSSHA is open to all attorneys admitted to practice in the
State of Washington who meet any one of the following criteria:
(a) represent or are employed by a provider of healthcare services, (b)
teach a healthcare-related area of the law or (c) otherwise practice in,
or seek practice in, a healthcare-related area of the law.
The Third Edition of the Washington Health Law
Manual is made possible through the
collaborative efforts of the Washington State
Society of Health Care Attorneys and the
Washington State Hospital Association.
