High-Volume Focus Hospitals are about to explode onto the health care conversation. The model halves the local cost of surgery, delivers top medical outcomes and creates experiences patients prefer.
Over the next few years the main operator will build 40,000 beds in both high-cost and low-cost environments.
Most hospital medicine is developed for the 8% to 10% of the world's population that can afford surgery. The rest go unserved. This model expands the pool of people who can be helped, saves money in richer countries and returns above average profits to owners.
Operators of existing hospitals need to pay attention too. When High-Volume Focus Hospitals open near you, they could hollow-out profitable surgeries, leaving hospitals with mostly, cost centers.
