COVID-19 is driving a need for healthcare organizations across the country to reassess their short- and long-term financial plans for a post-pandemic environment. As hospitals and health systems continue to work to meet the immediate demands of the current clinical crisis, healthcare leaders must also begin to plan for the months ahead.
