This week’s blog is an interview with the President of UPMC East, Mark Sevco.
The team at Select has extensive experience building high-volume hiring systems. When a client builds a new manufacturing or distribution center, and needs to hire a few thousand people in short period of time, we design the entire selection system. Compared to other industries, though, hospital start-ups are rare. Few healthcare executives get to lead such a fascinating project.
Given the new healthcare landscape, building a new hospital really means building a “new” hospital – a new concept in care delivery, efficiency, and the patient experience. It’s a daunting task, but also an exciting opportunity to build a culture and processes from the ground up; all designed to meet new quality and patient experience expectations. In some respects, it may be easier than changing an existing culture, but it certainly presents its own unique challenges.
