Vibra Healthcare Partners with Outcomes-Based Healthcare Firm Studer Group®

MECHANICSBURG, Pa.—Vibra Healthcare is transitioning to the next level in patient care through a new partnership with Studer Group®, an outcomes-based healthcare performance improvement firm based in Pensacola, Florida. Vibra Healthcare and Studer Group share similar values of providing the best possible care for patients and their families, as well as maintaining a hospitable, passionate workforce.

After a search lasting several months, Vibra chose to partner with Studer Group, a premier consultant that has worked with more than 750 healthcare organizations in the U.S. and beyond, mentoring healthcare providers on how to achieve, sustain and drive exceptional clinical, operational and financial outcomes. Studer Group helps bring structure and focus to organizations through the creation of cultures of high performance, setting up health systems to be able to execute change quickly. It’s this commitment to helping organizations accelerate their ability to execute that led to Studer Group receiving the 2010 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

“A positive patient experience is top priority for us, and we plan to take that experience to new heights,” says Vibra Healthcare founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brad Hollinger. “With this partnership, we’ll develop a quality improvement plan to enhance what’s important to our patients and their families—and that’s exceptional care—whether their stay is one day or longer.”

Vibra is a dedicated leader in specialty acute care and medical rehabilitation hospitals. The staff at Vibra ensures cost-efficient, high-quality care and works seamlessly to help patients regain their independence after a serious illness or injury and provide a quicker discharge home.

Studer Group CEO and President, BG Porter, looks forward to this working relationship. “Studer Group works with organizations to help them get better in areas that they are already focused on, such as quality, service, finance, growth and people,” said Porter. “We are honored to partner with Vibra as they achieve the highest level of quality and safe care.”
