Client: Dallas County Hospital | Perry, IA
Engagement: Strategic, Financial and Operational Assessment
Stroudwater Team: Lindsay Corcoran, MHA, Jonathan Pantenburg, MHA

In the summer of 2017, Dallas County Hospital engaged Stroudwater through a grant provided by the State Office of Rural Health Flex Program, managed by the Iowa Department of Public Health to perform a limited Strategic, Financial and Operational Assessment. Dallas County, based in Perry, Iowa, is a 25‐bed not‐for‐profit critical access hospital providing acute care, swing bed, primary care, emergency medicine, surgery, and related outpatient ancillary services to the residents of Perry and surrounding communities. Stroudwater’s Strategic, Financial, and Operational Assessment (SFOA) has been used successfully by a large number of rural hospitals as the framework for the development of a turnaround plan, for performance improvement, and as the foundation for strategic planning.
