STRATEGIC PLAN an unemployment rate of 5.5%, with the rate of unemployment being 4.2% in Pulaski County (Information for Indiana, 2014). As Pulaski Memorial Hospital could continue to grow and thrive through expansion of services, the organization will be creating more jobs for the community. The goal for Pulaski Memorial Hospital is to expand the services by creating and sporadically placing Minute Clinic(s) and express clinics around Pulaski County. Currently at Pulaski Memorial Hospital, there are two Family practices that are located outside of the hospital, at each end of the county (Pulaski Memorial Hospital, 2014c). The organization also just opened a Rural Health Clinic that is added on to the back of the hospital (Pulaski Memorial Hospital, 2014b). By implementing Minute Clinic(s) and express clinics, it would be beneficial to those patients that are older and others who are unable to drive a distance or depend on someone to take them to the doctor or hospital in Winamac. This would then be creating more jobs that would help make more revenue for the hospital and surrounding businesses within Pulaski County. Pulaski Memorial Hospital will also market the idea of bringing Minute Clinics to the county. Pulaski Memorial Hospital will collaborate with CVS to provide the Minute Clinic(s) for Pulaski County. A study was done and the researchers found that the fact that costs at a retail clinic are as much as 80% less than at an emergency room and 30%-40% less than a primary care physician’s office (Nisen, 2013). The study does find that clinics provide comparable care, despite significantly lower costs (Nisen, 2013). Timeline Pulaski Memorial Hospital will present the idea to the Board of Directors two months after the beginning of their next fiscal year. 10

STRATEGIC PLAN After the meeting with the Board of Directors, they will contact CVS to make a plan of collaborating with their company to start up a Minute Clinic or two around Pulaski County. The organization will then wait 6 months for the approval or denial of the Minute Clinic in collaboration with CVS. Information will then be provided to the hospital from CVS regarding how Minute Clinics will be ran after the approval of the clinic(s). Nurse Practitioners will be notified or hired one year after the plan is put in place. Nurses will also be notified or hired one year after the plan is put in place as well. Evaluation Nurse practitioners or nurses will distribute surveys to the patients regarding the Minute Clinic(s), and what is going good with the Minute Clinic(s) and what could be improved with the clinic. Will continue to monitor and stay in touch with CVS every 3 months.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
