The Bellwether Community members include:

  • Banner Health
  • Ochsner Health System
  • Mercy
  • Advocate Aurora Health
  • Northwestern Medicine
  • BJC HealthCare
  • Trinity Health
  • Geisinger
  • Duke Health
  • HCA Healthcare
  • Parkview Health
  • RUSH Health
  • BayCare Health System

Bellwether League Foundation appreciates the contributions and differences that all 25 Gartner-recognized healthcare systems make and doff our fedoras to the 13 above in particular. We invite all 25 to nominate candidates for Bellwether Honoree, Ammer Honoree and Future Famer consideration in 2022, which represents our 15th anniversary. We extend a very special invitation to the 12 who have yet to get to know us to reach out and take us for a test drive.
