Taking Charge of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (A)/ Paul Levy
Introduction /Background

In 1916 the Beth Israel Hospital was formed in the Boston area mainly because Jewish doctors wanted a hospital they could perform their practice.

This merger would hopefully balance out the market against Partners. As the two merged Mt Auburn Hospital, the New England Baptist Hospital, and one or two others joined the merger to form the CareGroup System.

Decisions were at a halt and no one took a leadership role to facilitate order through balance of the multiple hospitals now merged as one. The government passed an act called the Balanced Budget Act of 1996 which set limitations and restrictions on Medicare. Insurance companies were beginning to lose there subsidized funds from the government.
The CareGroup System was in trouble financially and if that was not enough management and seniors officers couldn’t get there act together. No long term goals were set and short term ones were rarely met. Adjusting to the newly formed merger was non existent in the organization and everyone was on a different page. This case identifies the problems BI and Deaconess had while trying to merge into one organization by revealing resistance from both sides. Paul Levy was brought in to interview with the case analysts to shed light on the event from his perspective while he was offered a senior executive position within the organization.

The decisions are being made the management but no one is following through. What went wrong? Why couldn’t these hospitals adapt to each others organizational culture and structure?
