Community hospitals have the power to not only provide health care, they also play a significant role in positively impacting the community. Due to this commitment to care and community, many community hospitals have not chosen to consolidate as have other healthcare organizations. However as independent entities, community hospitals are not exempt from the value-based pains others are going through.
Community hospitals must also carefully manage the performance of the operational, clinical, and IT within their hospital. Additionally, they must focus externally to engage others to form informal partnerships to further leverage their cause.
