Henry Ford Health System goes radical: Creating the hospital of the future
Date:4/20/2010

Looking to shake up your industry, transform your medical center, and recharge your organization?

A two-day educational symposium, "Going Radical: Creating the Hospital of the Future," may hold the key to revitalization. It will be held May 25 - 27.

Henry Ford Health System President and CEO Nancy Schlichting will share her radical, but practical strategies for success at the symposium, tapping into the wisdom of her top executives in an interactive session on the profound lessons learned during their tenure.

It was Schlichting's brainstorm to hire a CEO for Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital from outside the healthcare industry. Her choice was Gerard van Grinsven, a former executive of the Ritz-Carlton hotel chain, and an expert in service excellence.

Henry Ford West Bloomfield staff will discuss its successes in differentiating itself from the competition by:

  • Constructing prototype rooms for planning and community input.
  • Incorporating green features in the architecture and construction.
  • Building all private patient rooms, including in the emergency department.
  • Emphasizing wellness and healthy living.
  • Combining traditional clinical care with complementary therapies.
  • Creating a unique brand and inspiring staff to think differently.
  • Including family space in each patient room, including intensive care.
  • Implementing a new kind of food culture in health care.
  • Putting a focus on the special concerns of the elderly.

Entrepreneur Bill Taylor, co-author of Mavericks at Work and co-founder of Fast Company magazine, will be the keynote speaker. His ideas have helped shape the global conversation about how business works and "why the most original minds in business win". His next book, Practically Radical, to be published this fall, explores how to unleash big change in difficult times.
