Crozer-Keystone Management College Graduates New Class 

The Crozer-Keystone Management College graduated its latest class in December. Since 1993, this internal program has attempted to give selected managers a focused learning experience that aims to:

  • Provide a “global” perspective of CKHS business thinking and educate managers as to the planning, processes and decision-making operationalized for reaching strategic goals.
  • Facilitate joint collaboration of cross-entity, cross-functional issues and opportunities for improvement or ideas for innovation.
  • Facilitate colleagues meeting and working together from the various CKHS sites, and to build lasting networking relationships.
  • Elicit an understanding of our many types of customers and increasing our value to them through creative strategies tailored to their needs.
  • Prepare key management staff for the future.

Managers from throughout the system were nominated to participate by their respective vice-president-level administrator. The members of this “cohort” spent several sessions together between October and December.  

Lectures were led by CKHS upper level managers, who shared their area of experience, organizational responsibilities and challenges. A total of 15 different topics were presented. Cohort members also formed into four project teams to create relevant projects that addressed an innovation or opportunity for improvement for the health system. The students conceived and developed the projects themselves and presented them on the last day of classes. This year’s projects focused on such topics as:

  • Countering obesity in children and adolescents
  • Recycling usable furniture through a system-wide repository and online system
  • Reducing paper usage in meetings
  • Reducing the amount of Emergency Department visits by “frequent users”

Several past presentations have been adopted and implemented within Crozer-Keystone.
