Navigating Strategic Options in a Transformed Operating Environment

60 minute

The operating environment for hospitals and health systems has shifted markedly. The environment is more stable than it was in 2021 – 2022, but performance for many organizations lags behind pre-pandemic years. Competition has increased significantly, particularly in the outpatient arena, and the landscape continues to change. Potential uplink partners for smaller hospitals or health systems have become more selective. More than ever, organizations must assess what are realistic options for performance improvement, growth, or partnership in their markets.

Discussed in this webinar:

  • How market and other environmental pressures are affecting strategic options in different markets
  • How health systems are tackling performance improvement, strategic options, and potential repurposing of certain facilities and operations—all at the same time
  • Approaches to assessing and prioritizing strategic options and identifying key decision points
  • Options for divestiture or partnership of assets or business units that should be realigned
