Established in 1982, the New York Society for Health Planning (NYSHP) is a membership organization for a broad range of professionals involved in health care planning and related fields. The purpose of the Society is to enhance the health planning. The Society's mission is accomplished by sponsoring educational forums and providing opportunities for interaction among professionals in health planning and related fields.


Members are professionals from various health-related fields: strategic planning, administration and management, finance, marketing, public relations, consulting, managed care contracting and planning, physician practice, business development, community and government affairs - as well as architects, clinicians, and allied health professionals from a wide range of organizational levels.

Members of the Society are affiliated with many of the major private and public health care facilities and networks in the New York City metropolitan area, as well as managed care and insurance companies, major accounting firms, consulting firms, architectural and design companies, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations. NYSHP draws members from New York City and surrounding areas as well as outside New York State . We welcome all potential members wherever they reside. Student membership is available to those who are actively pursuing a full-time course of study in a discipline related to the Society's fields of interest.

Programs are scheduled at times that allow members and guests to attend without interrupting their busy work schedules. Refreshments are served and networking is encouraged.
