Mary Starmann Harrison, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Hospital Sisters Health System, was quoted in an article by Smith (2012) that the greatest challenge for health-care leaders today is the transition from volume to value, including a determination of how best to guide the organization through that transition as well as the timing to do so.
Doug Smith, president and CEO of B.E. Smith, suggests that the greatest challenges for contemporary health-care leaders are large turnover numbers and an inability or unwillingness to change. Carol Dozer, CEO of Ivinson Memorial Hospital, suggests it is the need to cut costs and preserve resources while bringing in the resources needed to operate under a value-based system.
Interview the CEO or top nursing executive at a local health-care agency. Ask them what they perceive to be the top five leadership challenges encountered by health-care leaders today.
Then ask them to identify five management challenges. Did these health-care leaders differentiate between leadership and management challenges? Did they feel that the leadership or management challenges were greater?
