Healthcare OD & Change:
Updating the UT Southwestern Story

At our June meeting you have the unique opportunity to get the inside view of an active large-scale change initiative in one of the most dynamic, growing, and busy industries around.

Ben Dilla is the Assistant Director of Organizational Development at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He will speak to the progress the UT Southwestern team has made on moving this medical organization from St. Paul Hospital to Clements University Hospital in December 2014, and how things have been going since.

Ben first spoke to the DFW OD Network 18 months ago about this initiative, giving us an intriguing preview of the size, scope, and plans underway for this move. Come and hear his update on the challenges they have addressed and how it’s working today.

And don’t forget, at the same time UT Southwestern Medical Center is dealing with this move it is also adapting to a sea change in its business environment resulting from new legislation and other ‘external’ influences. (And you thought your organization was experiencing big changes!)

Come see how OD teams are helping create new customer experiences in this organization as they deal with these disruptive changes in where and how they do business in a rapidly evolving industry. Only at the DFW OD Network!
