There is no substitute for real-world experience, but this casebook comes close! The Middleboro Casebook: Healthcare Strategy and Operations is an integrated case study focused on the fictional community of Middleboro and the seven healthcare organizations that serve it, including two hospitals, a long-term care facility, a home health agency, two physician group practices, and a local health department. A thorough examination of Middleboro and its demographic, socioeconomic, political, epidemiological, and environmental data and characteristics enables students to analyze the community in detail, focusing on those factors that drive the need for and use of healthcare services as well as framing the strategic decisions made by healthcare organizations. Included in this book are eight cases that cover authentic management scenarios, including:

  • History
  • Governance
  • Organizational structure
  • Programs and services
  • Finance
  • Operational challenges

The Middleboro Casebook can be used in a capstone course at the graduate or undergraduate level, or it can be used across the curriculum in health administration, health policy, and public policy programs. When using this casebook and the corresponding activities, students will become familiar with a variety of healthcare settings and the challenges managers currently face. Students will develop the management skills they need to succeed in real-world settings, bridging their current academic study with relevant professional practice.
