  • Business Best Practices

“AHS is excited to be a part of the MHEDA organization, and to be recognized is truly a testament to our employees and the efforts they continue to put into their careers.

“Both of MHEDA’s Awards, the MVP and MVS, are difficult to achieve without a companywide commitment to excellence in education, networking, and community service.
