Vision 2015 - The Future Starts Today
Since moving to Aurora’s far east side in 1995, Rush-Copley Medical Center has continued to strengthen its commitment to the community by expanding its services, recruiting quality physicians, striving for excellence of care and investing in technology to provide the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options.
As we move toward our goal of transforming Rush-Copley into a “regional medical center” in an ever-growing community, it is crucial that we look ahead—and carefully plan—for the future of the organization. President and CEO Barry C. Finn announced a strategic plan that not only sets a course of action for next year, but positions the medical center for the year 2015 and beyond.
Vision 2015 is comprised of six key components that each play a critical role in reaching our goals for the future:
Institute Development and Growth
Rush-Copley is setting strategic priorities and planning for the growth of its Institutes, including cancer care, cardiovascular services, emergency services, women’s health and neuroscience; it’s increasing the number of patient beds; expanding the medical staff, as well as its ancillary and support services; and striving to increase market share.
Quality & Patient Safety
In striving to assure our patients that they are in the safest environment possible, our goals are to achieve “Best in Nation” outcomes and to become an industry leader in patient safety practices and initiatives.
Community Stewardship and Partnership
As an integral part of the community we serve, Rush-Copley will continue its commitment and involvement in the improvement of the overall health education and wellness of the people in our community; provide care for those in need; attaining transparency in reporting pricing and patient outcomes; and explore ways to minimize the adverse effects on the environment.
It’s essential that Rush-Copley retains a strong financial profile by maintain access to additional capital; attaining financial ratios and conditions of A+ organizations; funding projects through the Rush-Copley Foundation; continued investment toward maintaining infrastructure and operations.
Employer of Choice
It’s just as important to us that we treat the people who work for Rush-Copley with as much care and respect as we do our patients by maintaining employee satisfaction scores at the 90th percentile; continuing to achieve vacancy and turnover rates, better than industry norms; and expanding our workforce to meet increasing demand and accommodate multiple campuses.
To achieve our commitment to continually update our technological resources, we will position Rush-Copley as a “fast follower” and “technology leader”; adopt a “leading edge,” not “bleeding edge” mindset; embrace research and technology based on clinical efficacy, quality, patient safety and ROI; differentiate Rush-Copley’s technology in the marketplace, while improving care; and achieve "meaningful use" as outlined in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
