Center for Hospital and Healthcare Administration History

The Center for Hospital and Healthcare Administration History (CHHAH) plays a dual role: making accessible to researchers and policy analysts the knowledge and experience of the past and collecting, preserving, and organizing information about today’s issues that will have lasting value for the future.  The Center was established by the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the American College of Healthcare Executives and is coordinated by the AHA Resource Center in collaboration with the Health Research and Educational Trust. The mission of the Center is to chronicle the history of hospitals and healthcare administration, especially that of the United States. The Center has become the collector and caretaker of collections and resources that in sum are the history of hospitals and healthcare administration. 

The Center is located at 155 North Wacker Drive - Suite 400, Chicago, IL 60606. The Resource Center’s hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. central time, Monday through Friday.  Inquiries may be directed via telephone:  (312) 422-2050 or email at

     From the Center for Health Studies:  

The Workshop on Quantitative Research Methods in Education, Health, and Social Sciences serves as an important venue on the University of Chicago campus for building an intellectual community of colleagues who share methodological interests.    

Workshop participants meet biweekly to discuss working papers and brainstorm solutions to methodological problems encountered in ongoing research. Participants include faculty members, researchers, and students from the Social Sciences Division, Health Studies, Statistics, Public Policy, the National Opinion Research Center, the Consortium for Chicago School Research, and colleagues from the University of Illinois in Chicago.    

This workshop is sponsored by the Committee on Education, the Center for Health Statistics, the Division of Social Sciences, and the National Opinion Research Center.
