In the June Hot Topics, Paul Kuehnert, DNP, RN, tells the story of how he led a fiscal and programmatic reorganization at Kane County Health Department and fortified the agency for long-term growth and sustainability.

May 29, 2013

In 2008, Kane County Health Department faced a new reality. The global recession was affecting the northern Illinois county so operating revenues for the health department were dropping off significantly. At the same time, community members were increasing their use of the department's services. In the wake of this resource crisis, department leaders developed a strategic, organizational response that transformed the agency’s finances and offerings.

In the June Hot Topics, Paul Kuehnert, DNP, RN, tells the story of how his leadership team used the public health accreditation standards to create a “slimmer, flatter, and more focused” agency with greater potential for long-term growth and sustainability. During the one-hour session, Kuehnert will also discuss how the reorganization led to increased community partnerships, additional revenue sources, and new opportunities for population-based prevention efforts.
