MBA students Edwin Hernandez, Chintan Somaiya, Natalie Eloskof, Travis Young, and faculty advisor Brian Weed, MA, competed on Friday, April 26, 2013 at California State University, San Bernardino in the Health Care Executives of Southern California's annual College Bowl. The team presented a strategy for improving operations at St. Rose Hospital in the Bay Area city of Hayward, California.
The Loma Linda University team's focus was on reducing the hospital's mounting debt that exceeds $75 million dollars, improving operations and HCAHPS scores, creating a favorable payer mix, and providing accessible services to the community via a transformed outpatient clinic.
The LLU team competed against MBA and MHA students from University of California, Los Angeles, University of Southern California, California State University, Northridge, California State University, Long Beach, California State University, San Bernardino, and California State University, Los Angeles. In 2014, the event will be held on the campus of California State University, Northridge.
