These organizations are sponsored by the Benedictine Sisters Benevolent Association and both BHS and BSBA retain certain reserved powers. Member Organizations must adhere to the full financial needs criteria of the System and have access to all Benedictine Health System programs and services. These organizations adhere to the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services.

These organizations, which are co-owned or co-sponsored by Benedictine and other sponsors, may or may not have access to the capital resources of Benedictine and are required to adhere to the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services. Both owners and/or sponsors may have reserved powers.
