Topic; change in culture of a healthcare merger

Description: [?]
Preferred language style: English (U.S.)

You are a middle manager in a healthcare organization that has merged
with a previous competitor. Up until now, employees saw the
competition as an enemy that provided poor quality of care. The new
corporation, however, has in place several inpatient and outpatient
services that your organization does not. What impact will the sale
have on the culture of the new combined organization? As a middle
manager, what can you do to ensure that the combined staff will work
together to provide quality care without taking on a competitive
stance? Finally, describe what the organization will look like, in
terms of systems and shape. Write your response in a 1,400- to
1,750-word paper in which you cite at least four references. Be sure
to use the readings to provide a theoretical framework for your
discussion.

Caution: Do NOT research an actual merger that has taken place. If you
do, you will receive zero points under the Content area (50% of the
points for this assignment). Please also note that the organizations
in question have inpatient and outpatient services, thus it is an
acute care facility.
