John Nance Productions - Board Retreats and Hospital Wide Education

Visit Website


Over the past year, John J. Nance, author of Why Hospitals Should Fly has teamed up with Kathleen Bartholomew in delivering extremely effective governance presentations and Board Retreats across the nation - programs which have consistently drawn the highest praise and appreciation from boards and C-suites alike. The game changing element that makes Nance and Bartholomew so effective together is their ability to show a hospital (or medical system) board what constitutes real versus illusory progress in quality, patient safety, and patient satisfaction. With Kathleen Bartholomew's extensive clinical experience as an RN and nursing leader coupled with John Nance's international reputation for cutting to the heart of what matters in patient care and medical safety systems, the typical result is a renewed dedication and changed direction for the entire hospital. Few hospitals are as far along in their goals as they think. Nance & Bartholomew offer a comprehensive progress evaluation as well as improvement strategies to Hospitals and their Systems from within, offering not only educational insight but practical wisdom and tools to achieve the goals set.

I can’t encourage you two enough – your message was as inspiring as it was jaw-dropping.  The individuals – and there were many – with whom your message resonated – thanked me profusely for having you here.  I honestly don’t know where we’d begin if it wasn’t for your message and mission."  Larry Elmer, MD  University of Toledo
