Strategy for a new health organization :( mission, vision, and culture). “Life’s Way”- Healthcare Facility.

Abstract
In this paper, I will discuss a strategy for a new health organization in which I serve in a leadership position. I will write a brief summary about the function of the organization. I will discuss the purpose for the organization as well as the population the organization will serve. I will discuss the governing body and structure that best suit the organization. In formulating a mission and vision statement for the organization, I will describe the culture as it relates to the organization.

Strategy for a new health organization: – “Life’s Way”- Healthcare Facility. Appendix:
Illustrated below are significant milestones in the development of nursing homes and Assisted Living Facilities (ALF) over the years. In the 1850-1870s, Florence Nightingale kept statistics on hospital mortality rate (Meisenheimer, 1992). Meisenheimer (1992) stated that Nightingale established the early process standards for nursing practice. On the other hand, Green (2009) stated that the industrial revolution reigning ideology of business is competitive, linear, behavioral, measurable, and quantifiable. In 1905-1908, Emory W. Groves continues with outcome approach and developed acceptable standards and established follow-up systems. In 1918, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals organization takes the work of the original hospital standardization program started by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) (Carroll, 2004).
