Meet Our Senior Partners

As CEOs and vice presidents of behavioral health hospital systems, they have real-world business experience. They tap into this wealth of experience to create solutions that can improve psychiatric service lines.

Turnaround Management

The senior partners of Schafer Consulting provide hands-on turnaround management services. We cater to hospitals, health systems, and academic medical centers that offer a wide range of behavioral health services.

Turnaround Operations Assessment and Management Action Plan

By collaborating with senior leadership, the governing body, or ownership of the program, we can complete a behavioral health turnaround operations assessment and develop a management action plan accordingly.

We create an assessment and turnaround plan that defines financial, operational, and quality objectives clearly. Our goal is to spell out the specific activities, responsibilities, and time frames involved in improving the behavioral health program’s financial and clinical performance. The management action plan we create may include:

  • Instituting Program Changes
  • Improving Productivity
  • Increasing Census
  • Renegotiating Contractual Obligations
  • Resolving Debt Issues
  • Correcting Compliance Deficiencies
  • Forming Strategic Alliances
  • Implementing Other Mission-Critical Changes

Examples of Our Turnaround Management Projects

  • Restructured and directed turnaround management of a psychiatric service line worth more than $61 million for a Harvard-affiliated teaching hospital
  • Identified $8.5 million in additional financial revenue for a health system behavioral health service line with a 100-bed psychiatric hospital and 13 behavioral health clinics
  • Financial turnaround of multistate children’s behavioral health system and residential treatment center near default on $100 million bond
