  4. 4. Market Served• focus on a narrow segment of potential patients who have hernia • they are predominantly male, • older in age, • essentially in good health • large market potential: 600,000 operations in US in 1979
  5. 5. Focus SegmentResponsiveness Shouldice high operations frontier One general facility World-class General low Hospital Low High Variety
  6. 6. Service at ShouldiceWhat is the service concept of the hospital? • To the patient: • Peace of mind • A holiday experience • New friends – a fraternity • You are special but treatment is standard • To the employee: • A direct professional contribution • A team and a place in the team
  7. 7. Process Structure: Potential Patients REJECTS REJECTS ROOM Questionaire Diagnosis Waiting List Waiting Room 30 days max. wait Billing Waiting Room 20 min Examinations 5/10 minutes Less than 10 min. ROOM Orientation Dinner Tea & cookie Socialization7

  9. 9. Profitabilityat ShouldiceEvidence of profitability• For the Hospital: Revenues: 4 days x $111 x 6850 patients = $3,040,000 Costs (pg.10) = $2,800,000 Profit = $ 240,000• For the Clinic: Revenues: $510 x 6850 + 20% anaesthetic ($75 x 6850) = $3,596,000 Cost (pg.10) = $2,000,000 Profit = $1,596,000

  11. 11. Operating Concept• Shouldicce achieves outstanding results as a low price and at a high profit because: • Everything done by the hospital is designed to maximize the difference between perceived quality and the value of the service provided patients on one hand and • the cost of providing the service on the other.
  12. 12. Service delivery system at Shouldice• Standardisation: screening of patients• Participation: patients do much of the work• Work environment: staff freed from usual disagreeable work• Economics: sharing of expensive services• Best practice: interaction of surgeons• Motivation: all employees interface with the customerFacilities for patients:• Avoidance of hospital atmosphere• Use of TVs, ‘phones• The Schedule and Programme (keep moving!)• Stairways• Operating rooms in semi-circle
  13. 13. Explaining Service success of Shouldice• Every employee has a role• Every employee interfaces with ‘customer’• Control of customer input• Necessary flexibility to keep to schedule• Small enough to work; big enough to be known
  14. 14. Future expansion options• Capacity at present: 6850 operations/50 weeks = 137 patients/week Examination Room 270 patients / week Admitting Procedure 240 patients / week Nurses’ Station 240 patients / week Operating Room 188 patients / week Doctors 178 patients / week Rooms 89 = 134 patients / week 103 = 148 patients / week Bottleneck: number of rooms
  15. 15. Future expansion options• Add a floor (45 more beds) • 29% increase, $930,000/year, i.e. 45% return on investment• Add a Saturday shift • 148 to 177 patients/week = $627,000 /year• Develop another facility• Replicate Shouldice on new specialty• BUT: when will service system break down? • for patients • for individual employees • for team and concept
