PHC 7-Year Strategic Plan

Physicians weigh in to 7-year plan

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
A new 7-year strategic plan is in the making at Providence. It will ultimately guide decisions and priorities across our organization, and affect our work and patient care. Physician voices will influence how our future shapes up.

On November 22, 2018, more than 100 physicians met to discuss priorities to submit to PHC’s strategic plan.  A diverse group of physicians from across Providence ranging from surgeons to radiologists came together with other medical staff and PHC leaders to share perspectives, ideas, and goals in five main areas:

  • Provision of exceptional care and outcomes
  • Integration of clinical care, research, and teaching
  • Our people and workplace
  • Seamless care between acute care and community care
  • Maintaining our unique culture

The discussion generated a number of goals and ideas that will be put forward for consideration as part of the 7-year plan.

“There was tons of energy in the room. There was enthusiasm around long term plans, as well as some simple, quick wins that we can build on to harvest that energy, and keep it going forward.Dr. Neil Wells, President, Medical Staff Association

“It was inspiring to hear directly from so many of our medical staff as we develop our plan, and to see 100+ PHC physicians actively engaged in the discussions.”Deb Mitchell, VP, Organizational Strategy & Partnership

“We had to keeping talking louder to hear over the next table. People have things to say and are excited that someone is listening.”Dr. Chantal Leger, Vice-President, PHC Physicians & Surgeons Society
