Vanguard Health Systems
Securing regulatory approval for a major corporate acquisition
PROJECT: Vanguard Health Systems is a leader in the long-term care and skilled-nursing industry. When Vanguard, a for-profit hospital system based in Tennessee, sought to purchase a non-profit hospital in Chicago, Resolute Consulting worked closely with Vanguard’s executive and legal teams team to ease their entry into the market and navigate the many challenges posed by the regulatory process, labor issues and community needs.
STRATEGY: Resolute designed and implemented a targeted communications plan to engage all stakeholders.
OUTCOME: In the end, Vanguard’s acquisition was approved with support from the state Attorney General, the medical community, employees and neighborhoods residents.
