Creating Hospital Centers of Excellence

Creating Hospital Centers of Excellence

The importance of developing a grand vision or plan with clear goals and implementing strategies that will improve patient safety and outcomes has become a 21st century goal for hospitals worldwide. Developing specific specialties such as orthopedics, oncology, and emergency medicine into Centers of Excellence is just one of the ways hospitals position themselves to be high-quality destinations for excellent patient care but also to attract the best physician, nursing, and specialist professionals.

American Health works with hospital clinicians and operational leaders to set the path to creating select department Centers of Excellence. This 3- 5 year partnership with American Health includes assigning a specialized team that will help hospitals:

  • Develop an overall vision
  • Set clear and big goals
  • Identify senior leaders needed to drive the plan
  • Develop against an established hospital role model
  • Define the strategies, tactics, and performance metrics
  • Build and implement the project plan with a team onsite to assist

American Health assembles a team of clinicians, operations executives, medical informatics
professionals along with certified project management leaders to assist designated hospital personnel to define and achieve their goals for creating a unique Center of Excellence in their hospital.
