Overview

At hospitals around the nation, the operating room may account for over two-thirds of gross revenue and drives up to 60% of the operating margin. Unfortunately, inefficiencies in the operating room often lead to poor financial outcomes for the hospital. With a renewed focus on overall efficiency at Memorial Regional Hospital, administration, surgeons, anesthesiologists and surgical services staff sought to reorganize the operating room and improve outpatient case volume, preadmission testing (PAT) and cancellation rates.

Memorial Regional Hospital is a 553-bed acute care medical center in Hollywood, Florida. The hospital is situated in the southern half of the competitive Fort Lauderdale market, and it is located just 20 miles north of Miami. Memorial Regional is the flagship facility of the third-largest public health system in the U.S. It has a long tradition of providing quality surgical care.
