Governance Annual Report

Governance Annual Report

While we serve a wide variety of clients with unique needs (Hospitals, Community Health Centers, Health Plans, Credit Unions etc.), and their markets and competitive challenges can vary, every client we served in 2017 shared these central measures of their success:

  • Service volume growth
  • Provider engagement and enthusiasm
  • Extraordinary patient experiences and service quality
  • Employee pride and loyalty
  • Financial vitality
  • Board member understanding and confidence
  • Broader community involvement?

The challenge for these organizations is not to achieve these metrics once, but to continuously enhance them over time.

Our success is measured by the success of our clients.  For a full Annual Report of our Governance and Leadership consulting services, please click HERE.  We value long term and repeat relationships with our clients, and drive to earn a trusted adviser status as a valued partner in their success.
