Help Where Hospitals Need It
Community Hospital Corporation (CHC) understands that community-based hospitals are vital assets to those they serve. That’s why we provide resources and support to hospitals, including flexible, individualized consulting and management services through CHC Consulting, a distinct CHC organization.
Together with hospital boards and leaders, CHC Consulting develops custom-fit solutions to help preserve and protect community hospitals in an unobtrusive, collaborative manner.
Solutions and Support for Community Based Hospitals
CHC Consulting provides management and consulting services and solutions tailored for community-based hospitals. Many clients who engage us begin with our comprehensive operational assessment, which evaluates the hospital’s finances, staffing, supply chain, information technology and revenue cycle, among other factors. This analysis identifies organizational strengths and vulnerabilities along with an action plan for short-term improvement and long-term success.
Assistance Often Begins With an Operational Assessment
CHC Consulting specializes in assessing all aspects of community hospital performance — medical staff development, payer relationships, supply chain, operational budget, capital, staff productivity, regulatory compliance — and in implementing plans that immediately improve the bottom line.
Along with operational and financial improvement, our experienced team offers a broad platform of services including strategic vision, because a common vision for the future among hospital leaders, board members, physicians and other stakeholders is paramount to success. CHC Consulting also helps hospitals across the country interpret and comply with complex, ever-changing healthcare regulations.
When a hospital’s future may be best served by affiliation, CHC Consulting helps the hospital get its house in order for a position of strength, then guides conversations toward a continuum of partnership options. Experience has shown that community-based hospitals can still thrive with a vision and approach that direct long-term sustainability.
When a hospital needs full management services, CHC Consulting works with the board to create an arrangement that addresses the hospital’s specific needs and circumstances.
