Our compass for strategically sound and ethical decision making.

The HSI Foundation Standards Board consists of industry leaders with a proven track record of honesty, integrity and impartiality. This board guides HSI Foundation decision making and resource allocation, provides innovative thought leadership and collaborates to form a strong governance structure.

The members of the HSI Foundation Standards Board play an essential role, as they are stewards of philanthropic resources. We count on them to participate, be aware of current needs, and look ahead towards future ones. They serve as ambassadors, forging important partnerships in the area of healthcare organization management. Importantly, they encourage us to think critically and ask ourselves questions about the ethical and legal matters of our dealings.
