ERA Optimizes Costs For One Community Health As They Continue Providing Optimal Care
One Community Health, a federally qualified health center in Sacramento, California, wanted to ensure the center operated as efficiently as possible. The CEO reached out to ERA to conduct a review of the organization’s expenses — having utilized ERA’s services in the past while CEO of a different company, she knew the cost savings ERA brings organizations can be substantial.
Our team of category specialists identified savings across seven cost categories resulting in $646k added to the organization’s bottom line annually. Savings were found in office and janitorial supplies, waste management, small parcel delivery, medical supplies, telecom, language translation, reference lab services, dental supplies, and staffing services.
As an added value, ERAs healthcare specialists could assist with executive turnover and provide resources for interim CFO and CIO services to facilitate continuity of leadership.
"The savings we’ve enjoyed have helped offset the cost of a recent organization-wide wage adjustment keeping us competitive in a challenging labor market. Recruiting and retaining quality staff has been key to us maximizing the services we can provide for our patients."
