Capital and Facility Planning

Analyze, optimize, and implement capital and facility planning with strategic business decisions.

As a high growth organization within an ever-changing health care landscape, it's likely that you are challenged by questions, such as:

  • Should we add a new service line?
  • Should we build a new facility?
  • What services should the new facility house?
  • Should we merge with a larger health system or acquire a smaller, specialty practice?

We utilize a combination of market, financial, and reimbursement data to support strategic business decisions. By exploring business decisions from these perspectives, we can be confident that our recommendations to you are thoroughly supported by evidence-based data.

Some of the specific areas we cover include:

Financial Services

  • Financial affordability studies
  • Debt capacity studies
  • Reimbursement impact studies
  • Financial examined forecasts
  • Feasibility studies
  • Lender selection facilitation
  • USDA and HUD financing
  • Strategic financial planning
  • Valuation and transactions

Are you concerned about the market challenges/opportunities related to new services or new markets? Are you addressing the dynamics of health care reform with a well-coordinated plan to address the "quadruple aim" from a strategic, service delivery, and operational perspective?  We can help. Contact us to share your questions and concerns. We can tell you how we've helped similar health care organizations and how we can help you.
