Frequently Asked Questions
My coworkers and I have achieved 100% membership, but my company has other facilities which don't meet the requirement. Should I apply anyway?

I'm interested in sponsoring membership for my facility's staff. Where can I learn more about how this will benefit our facility and our patients?
