You’ve dedicated your career to taking care of people, that’s what your staff does day in and day out.
Unfortunately, the good intentions of your Nonprofit Healthcare Organization don’t always equal success. So how can you live up to the standards you’ve set for yourself?
Nonprofit healthcare organizations, NPHO’s as we call them, are critical to providing healthcare services here in the United States, in fact, about 60% of community hospitals in the U.S. are nonprofit. That being said, a lot of what we knew about healthcare has changed over the years and today, many find themselves struggling to adapt.
Typically, NPHO’s are socially informed and invested in their communities, which means taking care of people rarely ends when they leave your doors. For many, it’s more about finding ways to keep your community healthy and strong so they are returning on a regular basis. In doing so, facilities and organizations are able to connect with their community on an entirely different level. This advantage is often missed at for profit healthcare operations– and it’s the kind of thing your patients notice.
Besides community benefits, NPHO’s also have generally lower cost of care, with higher quality and are seen as more trustworthy and less likely to make misleading claims. They also pride themselves on delivering care in a compassionate manner, while creating a safe and efficient environment for their patients.
When people support nonprofits by trusting them with their care, they’re also supporting their community. So much of what NPHO’s do is centered around a vision that wants to see their neighborhoods prosper. So, to answer the question of why nonprofit healthcare organizations matter most? Simply put, they are invested, committed and most importantly, they care.
