Building Better Boards

Every hospital board should have key fundamental tools to guide its governance practices and performance and development. The challenge for many hospital leaders is simply finding the time and resources required to develop these resources that are so critical for governance success.

The Walker Company has solved that challenge. Our easy-to-use, customizable toolkits will save you hundreds of hours of research and preparation time, and help ensure your governing leadership success. And our real-time education programs may be downloaded and watched at any time - watched together a board meeting or by trustees individually on their own.

All of the governance education and toolkits we offer have been tested at individual hospitals and hospital associations across the country.
