The facility was almost performing 6,500 procedures per year with a structural capacity of seven rooms; however, with 89% of the surgical schedule blocked, there was almost no room to accommodate growth. Read more to find out how Ogden Regional Medical Center optimized their block schedule to allow for increased volume, OR utilization, and incremental revenue.
