2020 Vision: The Right Path to Good Health

2020 Vision: The Right Path to Good Health

The U.S. healthcare industry continues to face unprecedented uncertainty as fundamental reforms are implemented:

  • The Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act
  • Maryland's new healthcare financing model for hospitals

The goals behind the initiatives are praiseworthy:

  • Improve the health of the population
  • Enhance the patient care experience
  • Reduce the cost of care

Achieving this triple aim is a challenge, as there are many unresolved questions about their implementation. Our new 2015-2020 Strategic Plan is designed to get us there.

Where We've Been

Atlantic General Hospital's previous five-year strategic plan helped us achieve many notable accomplishments, including:

...And we've accomplished all this coupled with operational efficiencies and positive financial performance.
