UHS executive speaks at healthcare conferences 


Nancy Rongo, RN, FACHE, chief quality officer at UHS, was one of the presenters at the American College of Healthcare Executives' recent annual Congress on Healthcare Leadership in Chicago. 

Ms. Rongo, a fellow of the College, discussed the successes of a clinical operations project at UHS Hospitals that has resulted in greater efficiency, cost savings and higher quality of care.

Her topic was “Improving the Bottom Line by Optimizing Patient Throughput.” 

She described methods recently adopted at UHS Wilson Medical Center and UHS Binghamton General Hospital that have produced better care management and an increase in inpatient and emergency room bed capacity.

She explained how hospitals can gain knowledge about the ways clinical leadership, evaluation of patient conditions and other factors affect bed capacity.

She has also been asked to present talks at two regional conference of the College - the 35th annual National Symposium for Healthcare Executives in Sandestin, Fla., and a meeting of the Fort Lauderdale/Miami Chapter of ACHE.

The American College of Healthcare Executives is an international professional society of more than 40,000 healthcare executives who lead hospitals, healthcare systems and other healthcare organizations. ACHE offers its prestigious FACHE credential, recognizing board-certification in healthcare management.
