Challenges Through Innovation
HINGHAM, MA, June 2007 – Phillips DiPisa, an executive search firm serving healthcare providers, managed care organizations and life sciences firms, today announced it has published a new whitepaper. This whitepaper is entitled, “Community Hospitals: Meeting Challenges Through Innovation” and is available for download on the firm’s Web site at www.PhillipsDiPisa.com.
It’s essential to understand the factors driving community hospitals’ current financial difficulties, and determine how to reform this crucial sector of our healthcare system. The creation last month of a community hospital task force by Rhode Island Governor Donald L. Carcieri underscores the growing pressure for change.
Community hospitals remain an essential component of our healthcare system, ensuring the availability of quality care at the local level. However, like their larger brethren, they face many challenges today. Increasing competition, access to capital for essential new technology, providing care for the uninsured – these are just some of the pressing concerns facing today’s community hospital executives.
Written by Ralph DiPisa, one of Phillips DiPisa’s principals, this whitepaper considers the issues facing these important organizations, and how some innovative community hospitals have been responding.
