Amid Global Pandemic, Hospital Finances Worsen and Doctors’ Satisfaction Drops

The decline in revenue from elective care has created financial hardship for most hospitals. But the results of Bain & Company’s latest survey of frontline providers, conducted with Dynata, indicate that not all are feeling the pain equally. Prior to Covid-19, 64% of providers described their employers as financially secure, and just 4% responded that they were financially challenged. Both groups are now more pessimistic, with those financially troubled before the pandemic especially so. Providers at financially challenged organizations have an employee engagement Net Promoter Score® significantly below that of financially secure organizations. So on top of their financial problems, these organizations may also face retention issues.
