Operating Room Methodology Workgroup

The Acute Care Services Committee of the State Health Coordinating Council has formed an Operating Room Methodology Workgroup. The workgroup will be developing suggestions for adjustments and changes to the OR methodology. The workgroup will present its findings to the Full SHCC in Spring 2017 for consideration in the 2018 State Medical Facilities Plan.

PDA will attend each scheduled meeting and provide insight as allowed. Please visit this page regularly, as we will post meeting notes from each workgroup session here.

We recognize that today’s healthcare market is fast-paced and demanding. If you have a particular concern, or would like more detailed briefings, please contact us at 919.754.0303 or kivey@pda-inc.net.

    All meetings will be held in Room 104 of the Brown Building on the Dorthea Dix Campus from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
