FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--Broward Health is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to retain Kaufman Hall & Associates, a premier healthcare management consultant, to assess the hospital system's financial health and provide guidance to best position Broward Health for the future. The Skokie, IL-based firm has a strong reputation for helping healthcare systems identify opportunities and increase efficiencies.
“Like all of today’s successful healthcare systems, we recognize the need to look closely at how we best steward our resources so we can be most effective in our delivery of care to the community,” said Broward Health Interim President/CEO Kevin Fusco. “Improving our organization with best practices will allow us to better serve our patients and grow where necessary.”
Kaufman Hall will conduct an analysis of the system and provide recommendations on how to best meet the organization’s financial and strategic goals to Broward Health and its governing board, the North Broward Hospital District Board. From there, leadership will determine next steps to move the system forward.
In December 2016, the board authorized the hiring an outside management firm to conduct an assessment of the Broward Health, which is one of the 10 largest public healthcare systems in the country.
The team is expected to begin work in early February.
