Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, hospitals and healthcare systems have endured
significant changes, ranging from volume disruption to supply issues, from financial challenges to government
subsidies, and from employee burnout to increasing turnover. Impacts from this public health crisis are still
causing shockwaves throughout the industry as organizations take action to recover and hospital leaders work
to place their facilities on a new path for operational and financial improvement. In various board rooms and on
virtual meeting platforms across the country, healthcare executives are now reworking long-range strategic
plans, redefining goals, and establishing future targets to promote sustainability.
