About Health Administration Press (HAP)

Health Administration Press is a division of the Foundation of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). Founded in 1972 with support from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, Health Administration Press has grown from a small office on the campus of the University of Michigan to one of the largest publishers of books and journals on all aspects of health services management, including textbooks for use in undergraduate and graduate courses. Now located in downtown Chicago, the Press also publishes two journals, the Journal of Healthcare Management and Frontiers of Health Services Management, and produces courses for the ACHE Self-Study Program.
