Alpha Consulting Group, Inc. was established to help hospitals and surgery centers make the Perioperative environment more efficient and effective, the best it can be from both a clinical excellence and financial profitability perspective. Recognition of the need for this type of service came from experience, from an operating room leader who had been in the trenches and recognized the challenges hospitals face in bringing their operating room services to full potential.
Identifying the Problem
Perioperative services can be one of the most profitable departments in a hospital and can account for a significant portion of the facility’s revenue when managed efficiently. The key to achieving effective operations begins with finding the right leadership, and that is a challenging goal given:
Doing Something About It
Knowing the need exists for a solid organization that can support hospitals in refining and improving their surgical services operations management, Paul Wafer, RN, MBA, put his 25 years of operating room experience on the line. Along with business-savvy Michelle Landa, BS, the two combined their healthcare expertise to co-found Alpha Consulting Group, Inc.
The organization began by providing perioperative consulting services, but it quickly became apparent that there was a great need for interim leaders. Expansion came quickly by adding interim leadership to our services.
