Turnaround, Affiliations, Bankruptcy

Making a legacy decision for your health system.

Propelled by the rapidly evolving environment, the financial performance of hospitals and health systems in the U.S. has steadily declined. And while the reasoning behind this decline is involved, financial problems tend to stem from volatile market dynamics, strategic issues, IT system conversions and debt.

Many are trying to determine a sustainable path while preserving some form of independence. Most hospitals are operating within razor-thin margins and increasing competition from other organizations as well as non-traditional providers.

To remain viable in the future, hospitals and health systems must revamp their strategies to match market demand. Leaders must answer the difficult question, “How can we best position our organization to be the sustainable healthcare provider of choice for the community we serve?”

Determining your organization’s strategic positions requires an understanding of what is needed to be sustainable in your market.

Sometimes, hospitals need a rapid solution for difficult situations. QHR Health's turnaround and insolvency consultants have advised many organizations in financial distress throughout a variety of markets. We give quick and honest solutions to help turnaround the most challenging of situations and meet stakeholder objectives. QHR’s proven capabilities have helped clients navigate their way through.
