Georgia Hospital/New Cardiovascular Service Line

Director of Cardiovascular Services Recruitment

Upon establishing the broad service line structure, the hospital leadership realized a need for a full-time Director of Cardiovascular Services.

Neuroscience Process Change

Neuroscience Program: Measuring the Impact of Process Change

Neuroscience Process ChangeA recent survey of hospital CEOs in the U.S. identified cost containment and the maximizing of revenue capture as top priorities. And given ever-growing industry emphasis on quality, hospitals must find ways to ensure best practice care comes at the lowest possible cost.

In the face of this finding, it may, on the surface, be counter-intuitive to suggest the engagement of an outside consultant in an effort to control costs, when an organization has already invested in qualified and competent service line leadership within the full-time work force. However, organizational leaders at the service line level are often consumed with day-to-day operations and, over time, are called upon to assume additional responsibilities.

The resulting dilution of work effort and diversion of attention means less time available to devote to the detailed evaluation, identification, and root cause analysis of operational inefficiencies that are directly and negatively impacting the organization’s bottom line.

Oregon Heart Center

Vascular Surgeon Recruitment & Practice Development

Yavapai Regional Medical Center

Comprehensive Spine Services Development

The result is a highly collaborative spine center that is experiencing continued growth and is differentiated from competitors due to high quality and patient satisfaction scores.
