Overview

At LHA Trust Funds, we understand the challenges that healthcare organizations face when balancing safe care environments for patients while maintaining safe and healthy workplaces for employees. Creating and maintaining a safe, healthy workplace helps ensure the work environment is as safe as possible and also increases employee satisfaction.
