Chief Executive Officer
“We are radically passionate about improving the quality of life of American employees leading to a better tomorrow for them and their employers.”
MEET OUR LEADERS brent-kruel-ceo

Our story started in 2007 with…

one Fortune 500 manufacturing company.
They cared so much for their employees, they hired the physician from a professional baseball team to keep them productive and pain free at work and home.
They are still a national BHS customer…

Today we are leaders in health and wellness…

We coined the term “health assurance” as innovators that discovered and combined the best ingredients of corporate wellness, occupational health, soft tissue healthcare, and screening / prevention tools for employee health.
Then we used technology to tie it all together to deliver a measurable impact for U.S. companies.

We are creating value through your most valuable resource

The goodwill and loyalty created with leading employee benefit programs is paid in exponential dividends through productivity and retention.

What we believe

Our values shape our culture and drive our behaviors.
They were forged within BHS leaders from an average 20+ years in service to country and patients worldwide.

Core Values

We are veteran owned with a foundation of
integrity first and service before self.

Ethics

Acting with integrity will always be the right thing to do.
We are passionate, honest and ethical.
