2012 Strategic Planning
by Pam Nenaber, CEO
With the end of the year approaching quickly, it is time once again to plan for the year ahead. Banner Health overall, along with individual hospitals, sets goals for various strategic initiatives ranging from financial performance and clinical outcomes to employee engagement and patient experience. Last year, we took a slightly different approach when determining the strategic initiatives for the Banner Gateway Campus and held a joint planning meeting that was attended by the Medical Executive Committee and the directors from the hospital.
We did the same this year as we plan for the goals for 2012. More than 40 people attended this year’s strategic planning session, including 17 physicians. The outcomes from this meeting were extremely positive as was the feedback from those who attended. This planning approach really encourages all of us to work together to achieve the same goals.
A list of the 2012 Strategic Initiatives will be introduced to you in the coming months. While some of the initiatives will remain the same, there will be several new ones. I want to thank you in advance for working collaboratively to ensure we are consistently providing our patients with the safest and best care possible.
