Strategic restructuring — the establishment of formal partnerships ranging from administrative consolidation to mergers — offers a variety of ways for clinics and community health centers to strengthen their positions and remain viable in the future.
This self-assessment tool is designed to help clinics determine their readiness to undertake a strategic restructuring process and to choose among the various options. The questions are designed to stimulate thinking and discussion about the organization's strengths, assets, and challenges and about how these might be leveraged, strengthened, or addressed by partnering with another organization.
Seeking various perspectives from within the organization will enrich the discussions and ultimately provide better guidance regarding strategic restructuring options.
An accompanying publication offers a variety of case studies and further information. Both publications are available as Document Downloads.
