About The American Association of Eye & Ear Hospitals

The American Association of Eye and Ear Hospitals (AAEEH) is an international trade association of institutions that specialize in diseases and treatments of the eye and ear.

The American Association of Eye And Ear Hospitals is comprised of the premier centers for specialized eye and ear procedures in the world. Association members are major referral centers, offering some of the most innovative teaching programs in the country, and routinely treat the most severely ill eye and ear patients. Mission of the AAEEH

The mission of these specialty institutions requires them to maintain leading edge technologies, enabling them to provide highly specialized services not available in general acute care hospitals.  

Back ground of the AAEEH

The AAEEH was founded in 1983 in response to the transition in site of care from the inpatient to the outpatient setting for a number of ophthalmic procedures. The nine founding institutions had three major objectives:

  organizing themselves for future government relations efforts if such initiatives were needed.

  developing group purchasing practices for more cost effective acquisition of pharmaceuticals and medical surgical products.

  sharing information and data in order to improve their facilities, Since the institutions were not competing with one another,.  

AAEEH members: Centers of Excellence

As evidence of the level of excellent care provided by AAEEH members in the U.S., since 1990, U.S. News and World Report have selected many of the Association's member facilities as being among the nation's finest hospitals ( see news ).

The AAEEH has started developing a service and quality differentiation project. This initiative is designed to differentiate AAEEH member hospital's services based upon key clinical outcome measures which can be tracked, analyzed and used to market the individual hospital(s) and facilities.
