Abington Health Business Councils
The Business Council was established to increase participation by area businesses in support of Abington Health's work. Members of our Business Councils are very important to the hospitals and a vital source of guidance in our effort to reach out to the business community. As a member of the Council, our members have the opportunity to connect with other business leaders and share their expertise in support of the hospital. They also gain an insider's perspective on the hospital and receive specialized information that they can bring back to their businesses and the community.
Participation on the Council involves approximately four, one-hour meetings per year, typically at 8 a.m. in the respective hospital's boardrooms. Meetings of the Council provide ongoing education on medical developments at the hospitals and include presentations by senior medical and administrative staff to promote better awareness of the benefits the hospital provides to the community. The Council offers recognition and sponsorship opportunities, as well as invitations to special events, for business leaders who support the hospital through their annual business philanthropy. Membership is by invitation.
