Healthcare has generosity at its core, focusing on helping people in some of the worst moments of life.  However, being known as an organization that embodies generosity goes beyond patient care.  Rather it’s about the choices made around patient care and leading staff that truly build a culture of generosity that an organization will not only be known for but impact their community for years to come.

This is why generosity has been and continues to be one of the driving forces in everything we do at BHS. We strive to make a difference in the world, not just through Release of Information services, but in all aspects of our business.

We have found that being an organization that authentically works to embody its values, speaks more than any article or review. So here are some ways we have found to make Generosity part of our culture:

Building a Legacy of Giving:

As our company continues to expand, we actively seek to partner with organizations that are making significant strides in their communities and the world. Our goal is to allocate a portion of our profits to these organizations, especially those that resonate with BHS’s core values of generosity and transformative impact to the needy in this world. By aligning with such organizations, we not only demonstrate our commitment to social responsibility but also offer facilities,  patients, requesters, vendors, and BHS staff a glimpse into the heart of our company – a commitment to generosity as an integral part of our identity

Giving Without Expectation:

Beyond monetary contributions, we extend our support to community clinics by offering select services at no cost. This initiative is not just about providing financial relief; it’s about enhancing their operational efficiency. By doing so, we aim to empower these organizations to excel in every facet of their work, ensuring they have the tools and resources needed for success.

Fostering Employee Development:

Our commitment extends beyond creating a desirable workplace; we focus on nurturing each team member’s potential. By offering tailored growth opportunities, we enable our staff to broaden their expertise, acquire new skills, and pursue their interests and strengths. This approach reflects our dedication to valuing employees not only for their contributions but also for their unique identities. In doing so, we infuse our core value of generosity into every aspect of our human resources approach, ensuring a holistic and supportive environment for all.

Embracing Positive Intent:

In any national organization, challenges and misunderstandings are inevitable. However, by approaching each interaction with the assumption of positive intent, we foster a culture of generosity and understanding. This principle guides us in maintaining a spirit of goodwill in both our everyday and professional interactions, keeping our core values at the forefront of all we do.

Collaborative Knowledge Sharing:

While retaining our expertise exclusively within our organization is an option, we choose a more collaborative path. We actively seek opportunities to contribute to the broader healthcare community by disseminating our knowledge and insights. This is achieved through publishing articles, participating in networking events, and fostering professional connections. Our goal is to propel the entire community forward, believing that shared progress benefits everyone

We believe that striving for a generous culture is about creating an ecosystem of compassion and empathy that extends to every aspect of the organization’s operations and interactions. This approach not only enhances the reputation of the organization but also makes a significant impact on the health and well-being of the community it serves. Remember, generosity isn’t just about what you do; it’s about who you are.
