WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING
"Our experience with Lutz has always been positive, professional, and timely. The consulting advice has been beneficial to our organization".
The quality of people in the IT world that would just work as your employee is limited in these rural areas. Five Nines fills that gap for us. I really feel like this collaboration is a real partnership. This is long term, we look at the big picture rather than those little pieces.
UNANIMOUS understands strategy. When it was time to address our outdated mission and vision we wanted a firm to facilitate our process for updating it. They understood the connection between branding and strategy. Their facilitation included robust imput from senior leaders as well as community leaders, staff and patients. It felt like they understood exactly what we were needing and how to help us get it done.
Bryan Health Connect's partnership with NHA Services Preferred Business Partner Bellevue University is a great addition to the services offered to our membership.
