Operational Improvement

Efficient operations help a hospital improve patient satisfaction, clinical outcomes and financial performance. The first step of the process is a comprehensive operational assessment completed by CHC Consulting that includes a thorough review of operations and an actionable plan for improvement. The hospital leadership may wish to implement this action plan on its own, or CHC Consulting can remain involved in a consulting or hospital management role. If hospital leadership seeks leasing and ownership models, CHC stands ready to lend support with a wide range of services.
