How to become an Investing Partner of Stakeholder Health

Stakeholder Health is a learning community in which more than 50 health systems have participated. All of the Stakeholder activity rests on a small core of investing health system partners. We receive occasional grants from one of the national foundations that share our commitments for specific meetings or projects. The learning community is an open table set by the core partner organizations, which invest $12,000. This goes to the Secretariat hosted at Wake Forest Baptist Health with no overhead charged. This enables us to communicate and coordinate the learning through the website, other media and occasional in-person meetings. Although we occasionally outsource specific tasks, Stakeholder Health has no employees paid out of core funds. And, of course, the vast portion of the learning/writing is provided in kind by the learning community.

This is an open table, but we are glad to invite others to be investing partners.

Three key commitments

Those core partners make three key commitments, the least of which is a financial commitment. First, and most important, partners lend a senior leader to the Stakeholder Health Advisory Council (SHAC). This group shapes the direction and priorities. It meets virtually on an as needed basis.  We are building a movement, not a monument, but the SHAC helps give the movement direction.

Second, we are sensitive to placing any regular time demands on the CEOs but do need confirmation of their personal creative involvement. We hold CEO-only conference calls on specific subjects, such as how the CEOs are managing the increasing demands on their role as anchor leaders in their communities far outside the traditional walls of healthcare.

Third, the financial commitment is the key to giving Stakeholder Health freedom to move under our own power, avoiding the temptations of large structure or grant dependency. This is what makes it possible for us to be brave and not just clever.

While the learning table is open to all, Stakeholder Health leaders do frequently meet on site with the core health system leaders teams for one-two-day visits. This itself is often highly valued by the core leaders. We also tend to schedule the cycle of learning events in the communities of our core partners.

Stakeholder Health is not an advocacy group, but we do tend to have a common perspective that sees the current policy environment as an opportunity to live into our founders’ mission for advancing health and wholeness at community scale.  Many Stakeholder Health Investing Partners are explicitly faith-based and, we might say, faith-furtured. All of us see faith networks as key community assets that help us to be brave as well as smart.

For more information

If you are interested in discussing becoming one of the Investing Partners, contact Gary Gunderson at ggunders@wakehealth.edu or Dora Barilla at dorabarilla@hc2strategies.com to set up a phone conversation or an on-site visit. If you know you want to be a Partner, let Dora or Gary know how to send the invoice for payment and who you think most appropriate to represent your organization on the SHAC.
