HealthWorks specializes in strategic and business planning. We have completed 150 planning engagements for diverse clients including multi-hospital systems, hospitals, academic medical centers and physician groups.

Services and Approach

Strategic planning: We develop a cohesive set of strategic initiatives designed to improve organizational performance relative to competitors over three to 10 years.

Business planning: We perform market analysis, volume projections, financial modeling and return on investment analysis for specific services including:

  • Medical staff development planning: We conduct physician supply and community needs assessment, physician recruitment and integration strategies.
  • Integrated facilities and business planning: Our business and capacity planning efforts are integrated with facility planning and conducted in partnership with architectural firms. This reduces the risk of planning too much capacity, too little capacity or the wrong kind of capacity.

We challenge leaders to consider alternatives that include bold and innovative visions for clinical services, financial performance and market position. We work closely with you to combine our market insight and industry experience with your internal knowledge, and help you visualize alternatives and understand key performance metrics.

In all our work, we emphasize collaboration by identifying common interests and designing partnerships that align incentives. Our phased approach — engaging your team in previews, dialogue and refinements — brings clarity and consensus to support leadership decision-making.

We are known for our clear and practical presentation of data about your market and your organization. We focus on points of high leverage and we incorporate ways to establish feedback systems comparing actual to desired performance in both clinical outcomes and financial results. Our strategic and business plans are practical guides for implementation.
