Management & Innovation Experts

Many management consulting firms profess to specialize in healthcare; yet, few of their people have spent their careers in the field. Each BERNARD team consultant belongs to the National Society of Certified Healthcare Business Consultants and their vocation is and has always been in healthcare.

With a passion for innovation and in-depth knowledge of how the healthcare system works, BERNARD is a trusted partner to many mental health, seniors’ care, community health and primary care organizations seeking to have an impact.

If your organization is struggling with clinical, operational and/or organizational inefficiencies; staffing and scheduling; staff and leadership training and retention; client and/or caregiver engagement; or governance, we can help.
