Healthcare Organizations Success Stories

Homestead Hospital

Over time, and especially throughout the last decade, the culture of the hospital’s employees and medical staff has been one that values quality, clinical outcomes, and patient care. Investments in infrastructure and people helped the hospital become a fine, well respected organization. But with one of the state’s most rapidly growing communities spurring broadened health care needs and the advent of rising consumer expectations for service excellence in the hospital setting, the leadership at Homestead Hospital decided it needed a catalyst to move from being a good organization to a great one.

There is something to be said about the excitement one feels when getting a personal phone call from the guru of health care himself.
