The Case of Marketing Administrator
You are pleased to start your new job as the administrator of a skilled nursing facility. The facility that you are running, Lazy Oaks, is in the middle of a rather large city. On one side of the facility is a large hospital and is in fact the only Trauma Level 1 in the area. On the other side is a medium sized health complex which houses numerous private practice physicians. Your for-profit facility is 180 beds in size and historically operated at or above budget… that is until recently.
The hospital located in your neighborhood has received the necessary Certificate of Need and has embarked on converting a building within 1/2 mile of your location into a skilled nursing facility to which they intend referring their discharged patients in need of skilled nursing care.
