Steve Scogna, CEO of Northwest Community Healthcare was this week's guest speaker.  He gave an update on the healthcare system’s core strategies, and answered questions on a wide range of topics.
 

Steve explained that the Board of NCH is community based, and is committed to maintaining local control and independence.  This has been possible due to its strong balance sheet, strong medical staff, and large delivery system within its service area;  characteristics that other hospitals which have aligned with hospital systems do not usually enjoy.  NCH has focused on patient safety and quality, patient experience, and partnerships with physicians and other organizations as it pursues its core strategies of capturing and managing lives, improving population health, developing a coordinated model of care, and effectively managing efficiencies.  Northwest Community Hospital has been recognized by Health Grades for its Clinical Excellence, a recognition that is only earned by the top 5% of hospitals in the country.
