With accountability as one of our core values, Bluewater Health is embracing new legislative requirements aimed at increasing accountability and transparency.
Hospitals, like many other organizations, have executives and volunteer Board members who incur business-related expenses from time to time which are permissible and reimbursable. The expenses typically fall into three categories: travel to events such as educational conferences or off-site meetings; meals while out-of-office on business; and hospitality when hosting guests such as healthcare leaders or doctors for recruitment. Bluewater Health’s expense policies are aligned with government expectations related to hospitals’ accountability and transparency.
