A hospital merger or consolidation process requires meticulous planning and organization, but can still raise questions regarding what is the best way to proceed, and what makes the most sense on an organizational basis. The answer is not always clear nor are all of the options available always recognized. Applied Management Systems (AMS) can fill several roles in the hospital merger or consolidation process. We are available to facilitate meetings with vendors or facilities, assist in identifying the various options available, review pros and cons of each route, and provide recommendations based on best practices we have worked with previously. AMS will also play an instrumental role in the post-merger period.
AMS has assisted many systems, hospitals and departments on everything from a laboratory consolidation to a health care system or hospital merger. We have worked with all levels of leadership and have implemented hospital best practice processes that have led to both successful organizational buy-in and a smooth transition process.
