CONSULTING PROJECTS:
As of 9/00

The Spaulding Consulting Program and my personal consultation effort evolved rapidly many years ago in response to inquiries from acute and specialty hospitals in the United States and around the world. I have led or supervised the following consulting projects.

1974-1998 Encouraged the visitation of physicians, therapists, nurses and administrators to spend time at the Spaulding Hospital in various types of administrative internships for the purposes of understanding the administrative structure and operation of a rehabilitation hospital. One physician from Saudi Arabia spent one full year. Other persons from around the country have spent as long as a year and as short as a few weeks.

1984-1997 Consultation to the Burbank Hospital in Fitchburg, MA for the development of a 25-bed Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit. Management and consulting to the Burbank Hospital for the regulatory application for a Certificate of Need, financial planning, opening, and management. The unit is named the Burbank-Spaulding Rehabilitation Unit at the Burbank Hospital and is part of the HealthAlliance System in Leominster. The inpatient and outpatient programs have been very successful. The management contract continues.

The consultation led to the Spaulding-MGH initiative to build the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Cape and Islands. Spaulding led the development, financing, and operational planning for the new hospital. After many years of regulatory applications, design, construction, and feasibility studies, the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Cape and Islands opened in 1995 and has been very successful.
