    In the blogosphere, there is a list of hospitals and healthcare affiliates who are doing six sigma. I’d like to see if we can add to the list. If you are actively doing six sigma/lean SS, pleas indicate by replying to the thread.  Please include your state as well.  This is not an advertisement opportunity, simply a list for possible networking and honestly, just my curiosity.  Interested in only healthcare providers, please.

    We have a small Six Sigma unit (2 BB’s for 4000+ employees), but FOCUS PDSA is still the hospitals’ official process improvement model. We tend to focus more on business and service delivery with 6S, rather than the clinical process.

    Hi Brit.  We’re a large healthcare system relatively new to LSS and started our first wave last year.  We’re now on our third wave of projects across all of our hospitals, and have learned a lot in the process.

    I am one of 2 green belts trying to get six sigma into our organization. Located in Illinois, we are a community hospital part of a system of 8 hospitals. I am currently on my second 6s project but system not ready for 6s as a whole.

    We are a stand alone 300+ bed facility in East/Central Alabama.  Likewise, we have not officially fielded SS, but my team of five uses a SS roadmap when our dept. (called Process Management) works projects.  We focus on operational issues (like Pt flow and throughput – in the CCL or ER for example) as opposed to clinical issues.  We have a different dept. for the clinical issues.  Likewise here the overall organization uses PDCA.  My team is really a group of SS BB’s doing cross functional projects. 
    Are any of you looking specifically at Labor Productivity?

    I am the only Black Belt currently in our hospital. We are a small rural hospital located in Greeneville, TN. Our organization as a whole has several Green and Black Belts. Here at our hospital we are “slowly” implementing the Six Sigma Methodology. I currently have all of our Directors using the DMAIC process for Performance Improvement projects instead of PDCA. PDCA has been used for so long the change process is slow, but we are getting there.

    I need to network with other hospitals that are using Lean and Six Sigma.  I would like to find out how your department is set up and how you operate.  If anyone out there would be willing to help, I would appreciate it!

    Janet,
    Maybe we could exchange info…I am a MBB at a hospital in Kansas City – we might be able to share experiences.  Would you be willing to share your e-mail?

    Ron, we’re located just up the road from you in VA. It’s possible we might be considering a larger deployment of 6S soon (we’re still in the “prove-it-to-me” stage). Is there a possibility we could consult with someone there on deployment strategies?

    Add St. Vincent’s Health System in Jacksonville, Florida to the list (500+ beds and will add a 2nd hospital in April 2008).  We  began our Six Sigma training through Chip Caldwell & Associates in July 2006.  We currently have 3 Black Belts and 9 Green Belts and have completed 15 DMAICs with 9 in the works right now. By the end of November we will have 2 Master Black Belts, 5 Black Belts and 6 Green Belts.  We will add Lean training in early December.
