Non-profit values, investor owned vision
Vanguard embraces the principles of non-profit health care and marries them with the business acumen of a privately owned organization.
At Vanguard, we serve as the bridge between non-profit health systems and the strengths of a for-profit corporation. In providing that bridge, we view our health systems as partners, and with partnership comes opportunity. We offer our partners a broad spectrum of experience, from operations, contracting and finance to purchasing, human resources and community relations.
Sensitive to a hospital’s specific needs, we collaborate with the existing staff, remain dedicated to the community and invest in the hospital by providing resources and technology that improve the overall care patients receive. Furthermore, we respect the hospital’s autonomy and firmly believe in maintaining local authority. This serves our partners well. It serves Vanguard well. Most importantly, though, it serves patients well.
