AAS in Health Administration

The healthcare industry is undergoing significant growth and change. The population is aging and has an increased need for healthcare services. At the same time, changing technology is producing new options in treatment. Hospitals are becoming larger and, in some cases, more specialized. New organizations, such as health management organizations, group practices, long-term care centers, and hospices, have formed to assist in the provision of healthcare services.

The Associate of Applied Science in Health Administration will prepare you for a role in managing healthcare systems effectively and efficiently. You will learn about the current legal and ethical standards in healthcare and will be introduced to the role and function of a healthcare manager in a variety of healthcare settings. You also will study the factors affecting healthcare management, including government policies, human resource and material management, and capital investment.
