Northeast Strategic Facility Master Plan

Northeast United States

425 hospital beds in the northeast

Condensing services for increased returns.

A merger resulted in two nearby hospitals (and former competitors) within the same system. It had been apparent that sustaining two community hospitals within such close proximity was not possible. Both hospitals ran at approximately 60% staffed capacity, and inpatient volume is anticipated to gradually decrease. That volume would not produce adequate returns to sustain two facilities with aging physical plants and infrastructure over the long term.

Haskell’s master plan focused on key service lines: emergency care, inpatient beds, behavioral health, and outpatient services. Priorities for the study included reducing duplicate services, managing operating costs, and relocating outpatient services and/or non-clinical functions out of the acute hospital setting.

Our master plan recommendation calls for a single inpatient facility and a separate, dedicated ambulatory facility. The volume and pro forma analysis indicates this solution will produce a long-term, sustainable acute care presence in the community. While this solution would provide quality care, it is not without challenges. The primary issue is the requirement for significant capital investment. To address this problem and achieve the long-term solution, Haskell phased the implementation over an extended period of time.

As developers and owners of healthcare facilities, we rely on Haskell to deliver our projects in a cost-effective manner and on a timely basis. The consistent, high quality of the finished product never lets us down. Haskell has demonstrated that they are a dedicated part of our team."
