Hospitals and Health Systems

Whether operating on a nonprofit or for-profit basis, all hospitals have one thing in common: they need to figure out ways to serve the community while controlling costs.

We Understand the Issues Hospitals Face

Sibson Consulting provides health insurance and benefits consulting to hospitals, the healthcare industry and nonprofit organizations. Sibson is a leader in developing innovative health and wellness programs that reduce healthcare costs and improve productivity.

Sibson's extensive experience in the hospital/healthcare marketplace means that we know a variety of proven and successful solutions and approaches to the common issues and problems facing healthcare organizations. However, we also know that every facility and healthcare system is unique, and we invest the time to understand your organization's unique needs and issues.

Sibson can help with challenges including:

  • Staff recruitment and retention: While organizations in other sectors of the economy may be downsizing or restructuring, the hospital and healthcare sector is growing and is expected to continue to grow as our population ages. Hospitals are having a difficult time attracting qualified individuals  including nurses, lab technicians, radiation technicians and pharmacists, among other key stakeholders   and maintaining workforce satisfaction.
  • Leveraging internal resources: As healthcare providers, hospitals have extensive internal resources that can be tapped when creating wellness, employee assistance, in-house pharmacies and disease management programs.
  • Using in-house pharmacies and providers: Using a hospital's in-house pharmacy can provide convenient access and potential savings for hospitals and health systems. Many hospitals also encourage utilization of their own facilities through an EPO (exclusive provider organization), triple option or an "inner" tier network PPO option.
