Good afternoon, SHVL friends -
My hospital system has 3 hospitals and each of those hospitals has an established Auxiliary. Three Auxiliaries is a lot to keep wrangled in! Now that we have been returning from our COVID hiatus, we are finding that 3 Auxiliaries are struggling.
I have scheduled a conversation in late September for the leadership boards of all three groups to come together and brainstorm for ideas to succeed in our new normal. One of the ideas that I expect to come up consolidating the 3 Auxiliaries into one, which would be a system-wide Auxiliary. (I am in favor of this idea.)
My question is, does anyone in SHVL-land have experience with this type of consolidation/merger? Any advice or pitfalls to watch out for?
Thanks in advance!
