As an NCHN partner, Parker, Smith & Feek will support NCHN's mission of supporting and strengthening health networks by providing insurance program auditing, risk management consulting, and insurance solutions relevant to health networks and their members. Parker, Smith & Feek is offering NCHN members a free self-insured employee benefits audit that includes a review of their current benefits plan structure compared to industry benchmarks and third-party administration, stop loss, and pharmacy benefits manager re-pricings.

Parker, Smith & Feek’s dedicated Healthcare Practice Group has over 40 years of experience addressing risk management and insurance strategies and solutions to help members examine both the cost and quality of their existing insurance programs. They recognize that tackling such a wide range of challenges for so many types of clients takes a very deep bench of talented risk management and insurance professionals and have assembled a team of experts to serve healthcare organizations. Their Healthcare Practice Group serves a vast array of clients, including assisted living centers, clinics, community health centers, equipment manufacturers, rural hospitals, regional hospitals, hospices, long-term care organizations, mental health facilities, non-profits, and pharmaceutical/medical device companies.

ENGAGED COMMUNITIES FOR HEALTHCARE MISSIONS

Hillary Lyons Associates happily joins NCHN in the mission of strengthening health networks. Beginning with the belief that an engaged community is a pivotal resource for breakthrough achievements in the mission of care, they offer members both training and consult to assist in building increased local advocacy and sustainable philanthropic support.

 The Hillary Lyons Associates Difference

The basic premise: Community leaders who are involved with your organization know more. Those who know more, generally care more. Those who care more, give more. Those who give, make the best requests of others. We strive to build a more thoughtful, enterprising capacity for continuous philanthropy… so that local healthcare organizations can be a more powerful and sustainable force for good.

For many nonprofits, capital campaigns have been the traditional answer to funding their capital needs, but capital campaigns are a short-term episodic form of fundraising. They are beneficial if capital resource needs are also short-term and episodic. Over the course of 50+ years of work in healthcare exclusively, we’ve found that there are rarely any shortages of capital needs in community hospitals. Our focus, by contrast, is backed by a proven approach to increase charitable support, social capital, and marketing strength every year, every day. Our client work is distinguished by the presence of strong local volunteer leadership organized to expand community relationships and philanthropic support.
