Throughout her career, Cecily has:
- Led nonlabor operating room (OR) and cardiovascular teams at a large academic integrated delivery network (IDN) in Ohio, resulting in over $2.5 million in annualized, implemented savings.
- Led an OR assessment for a midsize community hospital in southern California, resulting in a playbook to improve patient throughput, capacity management and perioperative flow processes.
- Led an OR assessment for a large teaching hospital in south Florida, where she evaluated all aspects of the perioperative continuum as well as OR inventory and the sterile processing department, resulting in a road map for a new block schedule, room utilization targets for both inpatient and outpatient sites, case scheduling, OR governance, a new organizational chart and a methodology to continue to calculate monthly capacity statistics.
