We help start-up groups and nation-wide caregiver institutions bring their vision to reality.
The public system cannot accommodate unprecedented demand in healthcare, giving rise to private nursing homes, at-home senior care options, as well as respite for those suffering from mental illness or addictions. While much needed, these organizations are often started by visionaries who do not have a deep understanding of healthcare and its challenges.
BERNARD is a boutique firm of certified and regulated healthcare professionals and management consultants that works alongside these visionaries to provide counsel on:
Healthcare start-ups: With decades of experience in healthcare reorganization and design, and a reputation for innovation and out of the box thinking, BERNARD helps start-up organizations have maximum impact in caring for the sick; individuals struggling with addictions; elderly, their families and caregivers, while attracting and retaining the very best people.
Operational Review: BERNARD works with healthcare leadership teams to review operations to ensure their agility, efficiency and sustainability over the long term.
Clinical Services and Programs Review: BERNARD works with leadership and administrative teams to ensure clinical services and programs are compliant with collective agreements, pertinent legislation, while being efficient and effective.
Leadership & Management Development & Coaching: BERNARD knows the technical skills that are required in healthcare, and the language that inspires excellence – a perfect combination for nurturing and keeping the best and brightest at any organization.
Scheduling and Staffing Review: BERNARD works as leadership and nursing advisors and review and amend scheduling and staffing to increase employee and leader engagement, while decreasing absenteeism.

Sheryl Bernard Wedderburn created a critical path to complete the project in time, within budget and with very successful outcomes. She is extremely professional and reliable and would not only perform her duties within the identified scope of projects but she has gone beyond and provided mentorship and capacity building to the organization.
BERNARD provided excellent service and helped us achieve the Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority standards. I highly recommended Sheryl and her team for those who have difficulty with the RHRA standards. Currently, she is working on a business plan for the expansion of 50 beds at Pleasant Valley Home.
