HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital is excited to announce a new partnership with Studer Group®, an outcomes-based healthcare performance improvement firm based in Gulf Breeze, Fla.
Studer Group has worked with more than 1,000 health care organizations in the U.S. and beyond, teaching them how to achieve, sustain, and accelerate exceptional clinical, operational and financial outcomes. They help bring structure and focus to organizations through the creation of cultures of accountability and help set them up to be able to implement quickly. It’s this commitment to helping organizations accelerate their ability to implement that led to Studer Group receiving the 2010 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
“As we embark on this journey with the Studer Group, we are excited to join organizations like Geisinger, Baptist Health South Florida and Sharp Healthcare, said Aaron Puchbauer, president and CEO at HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital. “We share the same commitment to providing the best possible care for patients, their families and the community, as well as the best possible working environment for employees.”
Studer Group CEO and president, BG Porter, looks forward to this working relationship.
“Studer Group works with organizations to help them get better in areas that they are already focused on, such as quality, service, finance, growth and people,” Porter said. “Through our work together, I believe we can make health care a better place.”
