The integration of two previously independent hospitals into one academic medical center is complex. Significant investment in facilities and allocation of management resources are likely to be required to align the two institutions to function optimally as one.
In this presentation at the 2016 ASHE PDC Summit, Jennifer, Steve, and Mario discuss the strategy behind the integration of the former St. Raphael’s Hospital campus and Yale-New Haven Hospital, which has focused on investing in key facilities to develop distinct services, attract top medical staff, standardize spaces across sites, and elevate the quality of care and the patient experience.
