Jan Jennings’ frustration with the financial challenges hospitals are facing was evident within a few seconds of our interview with him.
“The typical American hospital is very poorly run,” says Jennings, president and CEO of American Healthcare Solutions.
For Jennings, one of the reasons hospitals are financially struggling can be traced back to leadership.
“There are some people in management positions across the country who are totally unqualified to run an American hospital,” he says. “They lack the training necessary to work in a hospital leadership position.”
He fears that the situation could get worse which could lead to more hospital mergers and shutdowns.
