There is one part of the Watchtower Society that is never discussed when it comes to financial outlays and expense of the WTS. And, this unmentioned "arm" of the WTS octopus is a substantial one and one that would require a substantial investment to keep operating. And, this arm keeps operating and is very active. That arm is the WTS' Hospital International Information Services. This operation is a complex and and weighty part of the WTS' concerns.
The HIS oversees branches in almost every country they operate in and their function is to train and maintain teams of JW men who we know as the Hospital Liasion Comittees, the HLC. And to maintain connections with the pharmaceutical and medical world. This network of people are governed by a quasi-medical people who are JWs. The WTS maintains a huge medical library that is "everything you ever wanted to know about blood" and up until recently, they produced copius amounts of promotional propagnada for the so-called "bloodless" field of medicine. They continue to produce and distribute their "blood management" propaganda throughout medical establishments across the globe. The entire network is very complex and exerts a worldwide influence. And it would take a lot of money to keep it operational - the investments into training, producing all the promontional material, and maintaining a medical library would be substantial.
My question is this - where does the money come from to keep this monster quasi-medical organization afloat - the Hospital International Information Services? Does the WTS ever solicit donations for the financing of the HLC network? The WTS asks for donations to literature and Kingdom Hall concerns, and world wide missionary work, etc, etc. but is the HLC ever mentioned?
Does anyone have any information on how the funding (which would be substantial) for the Hospital Information network is handled? Who pays for that "service"? Does anybody even care? Does anyone besides me ever wonder about how the WTS' medical arm is financed? Or how much it costs to keep it going? Where does the money come from to operate the hospital information network?
