Strategic Planning

CHC Consulting facilitates a planning retreat with key stakeholders to create a clear future vision for the hospital and develops an action plan to achieve that vision. During the retreat, strategic initiatives are defined that create a framework for the action plan.


  • The planning process starts with a presentation of internal and external environment data to encourage strategic thinking.
  • The process includes identifying key tactics, measurements and accountable parties for each strategic initiative along with specific action plans with timelines and accountability to realize implementation.
  • CHC supports the presentation of the strategic initiatives to the hospital board and other key stakeholders.
  • Hospitals with a clear vision for their future and a tactical plan to achieve that vision demonstrate stronger performance than those that do not.
