    We are considering posting a monthly newsletter on our Intra-net, which may later be added to our Website, as a way to educate staff and ultimately the community about our Community Benefit program. Does anyone else do something similar, and if so, would you have an example to share? I want to keep it simply (one page) if possible. Since we are still fairly new to the CBISA world, the first newsletter would be an intro type newsletter. I would appreciate any help/suggestions.

    We have put a one page CB update in our “Vitals” which is our employee newsletter. I’ve attached the format I’ve used which is simple to understand. Hopefully this helps!

    We do a monthly newsletter which we print out and distribute to departments and patients, and also post on our internet for public viewing. Each month we feature a particularly active department, a new program, or a particular category from CBISA. You can see our newsletters on our website: http://www.backushospital.org We have posted through September 2009 but will be updating it with October 2009 – February 2010.
