War Paint sm
Does every disagreement turn into a battle?

Maintaining good relationships among physicians, medical staff leaders, administration and staff is hard work. Progress toward good health care requires good communication, principled argument and, occasionally, a little outside help.

Imagine these common scenarios:

Spacer 3.5 inches
• You are a chief of staff and you want to reorganize the MEC to take advantage of more talent and energy. But some of the entrenched leadership doesn’t want to share power.

• As CEO, you want a happy medical staff, but they want to be paid for EMTALA obligations.

• Your Bylaws Committee is about to recommend reduction of departments to just Medicine and Surgery. Radiology is up in arms.

• Dr. Jones is a big producer for the hospital. High volume, however, has resulted in more than a few errors. Now what?

• Physician Assistants want broader privileges to match new powers under state licensure laws. Some physicians like the idea, others don’t. Where do you turn?
