Maggie’s view of the health care system

Maggie attributes the profit margins of the organization to fluctuating environmental conditions in the health sector. However, she had already put in place a strategy which would see the firm lower its costs, therefore, make the savings go up. Gill stated that she is overseeing the implementation of other Memorial Health strategies that would provide more opportunities for the next couple of years, hence, reversing the trend.

Maggie has been busy trying to complete a proposed partnership between Novant Health Inc. and Memorial Health Center.
