CHALLENGE

Navigant was engaged by Kettering Health Network to develop a business case and rationale for an innovative network development strategy that included micro-hospitals.  Kettering Health Network needed advice on how to develop a framework to help them decide where they should consider deploying micro-hospitals and what was required to meet their financial and operational goals.
