Share your expertise: Partner with your community
Abstract: Partnering with local employers to help provide health-based services can generate significant benefits over time for both the hospital and the community. A hospital can offer local businesses a track record of accomplishment, diversity and flexibility of services, and certified expertise. This article suggests some steps a hospital can take to share its medical expertise and establish itself and its physicians as the health care “providers of choice” for local employers and their workforces. In turn, the hospital’s resources can help improve employee health — and the companies’ bottom lines.
