Michael H. Focht Sr., Tenet's president and chief operating officer Chief Operating Officer (COO)
The officer of a firm responsible for day-to-day management, usually the president or an executive vice-president. , noted that the merger supports a major strategic objective by reinforcing Tenet's position in important markets such as Southern California Southern California, also colloquially known as SoCal, is the southern portion of the U.S. state of California. Centered on the cities of Los Angeles and San Diego, Southern California is home to nearly 24 million people and is the nation's second most populated region, and South Florida. The merger also opens attractive new markets for Tenet in Arizona and Massachusetts.
Focht emphasized, however, that Tenet will maintain its emphasis on locally directed healthcare, a cornerstone in the ability of Tenet hospitals to serve their communities professionally and compassionately. Tenet's operating culture emphasizes the importance of local governing boards comprised of physicians and community leaders who direct how Tenet hospitals address the healthcare needs of their own communities.
"Healthcare is and always will be a community endeavor," Focht said. "Our hospital boards have the authority and flexibility to respond quickly to local healthcare issues. At the same time, the corporation provides access to capital, management expertise, quality indicators, information systems and the ability to negotiate with payors and providers. It's really the best of both worlds: local care backed by national resources."
The merger accomplishes a number of strategic goals for Tenet, including:
- improving Tenet's ability to pursue strategic
acquisitions and partnerships;
- providing more comprehensive coverage to group
- enhancing Tenet's ability to negotiate contracts with
- achieving cost savings;
- creating a combined company with greater financial
resources and flexibility; and
- providing accretive earnings in fiscal 1998 and beyond,
