Leadership turnover: Don't lose sight of market strategy
The CEO turnover rate among the 4,566 hospitals tracked by the American College of Healthcare Executives is about 16%, which means that more than 700 organizations will find themselves with a new leader this year.

Marketing is not always at the top of the new leader's list, but it might be the most critical initiative to tackle-and it is imperative that the marketing strategy doesn't get lost in the shuffle.
