For hospital leadership looking to partner with an outsourced anesthesia services group, our best advice is to make sure your goals are aligned with those of your potential partner. In the video below, the CEO and CMO of Jersey City Medical Center discuss four questions a hospital leader can ask to evaluate a potential partner:
- What is my hospital’s mission? How will a partner help me achieve that mission?
- Are the lines of communication open in both directions between my hospital’s leadership and the partner’s leadership?
- Is my partner engaged with what I am trying to accomplish at my hospital?
- Does my partner have a culture that is focused on safety, hospital efficiency, and quality care?
