Governance, reinvented

An effective board significantly impacts organizational performance. Vanguard resources, events, research, and customized services form a comprehensive solution to build your high-performing board.



We invite you to connect with our staff and learn how The Governance Institute can give your team the tools needed in an increasingly complicated healthcare system.



The Governance Institute, a service of NRC Health, is a membership organization serving not-for-profit hospital and health system boards of directors, executives, and physician leadership.



The Governance Institute helps members identify their stage in a certain journey to gain resources and tools that will provide education and guidance.
