Jake Fowler, Sherry Swope, and Ashley Holmes (School Administrators from Clinton School District) recently presented to Golden Valley Memorial Hospital leaders about their continuous improvement journey, progress, and use of Evidence-Based Leadership tactics. Golden Valley Memorial Hospital won the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award three years ago, and have partnered with Studer Group for five years.
The hospital’s COO and school board member, Craig Thompson, requested the presentation to provide the team with a glimpse of how another community organization uses EBL to achieve results. School district leaders were met with an enthusiastic response to their presentation. Craig knew the school district’s use of short cycle reporting would resonate with hospital leaders. In turn, the hospital shared their use of electronic rounding with school administrators. Another collaboration opportunity between hospital leaders and school administrators will take place over the summer.
