2Community Hospital steadily growing with making the attempt to stay in competition with neighboring facilities I recommend that Community Hospital acquire the rental property on the south side of the city the building has enough space for several physician offices to order to stay in competition with neighboring competitors. The hospital should transform this space to an urgent care/acute care facility. The acute care facility should employ a pediatric physician, two family practice physicians that specializes in orthopedics, cardiology, and oncology, with the aging community.Per the five year projection plan there will be a 3% increase in Medicare coverage. With this 3%increase brings an aging community with medical issues such as diabetes, heart conditions, and cancer, providing these services to individuals will give those the opportunity to have a primary physician and specialist all in the same building who may suffer with these illnesses. An aging community also brings about those that may no longer be able to drive to Community Hospital were their primary physician may be located providing this option will not only build the morale for the hospital but also gives doctors the opportunity to lighten their load and give patients the proper care in which they deserve. The hospital only has one obstetrician on staff providing an obstetrician in an acute care will have women in the nearing areas have something closer to home instead of traveling several miles to competitors that is out of their zip codes or demographics. Women today are battling one of the most deadly illnesses in the world breast cancer, and cervical cancer, providing a women’s services giving them the opportunity to get examined to maintain early detection and be treated. Another service that would be beneficial to an acute care in the area is pediatrics children are always becoming ill, having accidents, or may need physicals, or immunizations for school or extra-curricular activities an cannot getin to see their primary physician the acute care will be able to provide children with emergency and non-emergency services.Competing hospitals has already drawn out a percentage of patients because lack there off quality of services or long wait times either it’s the issue of getting an appointment or long sitting times
3in the physician’s office. Lab services and STD testing is a great service to also add to the acute care. A pharmacy should also be included in the space this gives patients the convenience to have their prescription submitted right in then and there without having to drive to another pharmacy to get their medications. The job market growing in the automotive factory in the north side of town those workersmay live on the south side of town will have the option to see a primary physician closer to home or to their employers.
