In 1997 Nueterra was founded with a focus on physician partnerships to build ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). At this time the company was known as the ASC Group. After many years spent perfecting the ASC/physician management model, the company (now named Nueterra) turned its focus to include hospitals. Whether working with ASCs or hospitals, Nueterra’s primary goal is to be the best partner by providing minority ownership and management services.
In order be an influencer and provide great experience to our partners, it’s critical that Nueterra’s staff employ active listening and problem solving skills, and in age of immense technological advancement the best communication remains face-to-face. This communication forum allows our partners an opportunity to voice their wants and needs, and by facilitating this process all of Nueterra’s partners and staff can institute methods to improve and grow.
Once needs and wants are established, then strategic planning can begin. Strategic planning is often defined as an organization’s process for defining the company’s strategy or direction. This process can also include making decisions on how to best allocate resources in order to pursue the strategy.
Key Strategic Planning Questions:
- What do we do?
- Who is the target for our work?
- How do we excel?
Unfortunately there is never just one answer to these strategic planning questions and as a company grows and evolves so does its focus. Therefore it’s critical to check back often with both employees and partners to see how the company’s focus has changed and then align those current initiatives with the overall strategic planning.
