“Sullivan Healthcare Consulting redesigned our complete perioperative program. With the collaborative business and clinical model, we made data-driven decisions that brought positive results in staffing, scheduling, and overall efficiencies. We were able to provide an additional room for add-on cases, enabling our surgeons to take care of those patients during normal operating hours, which increased volume and decreased overtime. Sullivan gave us the tools to facilitate the development of strategies to ensure long-term success.”
