  Rebuild Your Workforce, Grow Your Bottom Line

Are you feeling the frustrations of:

  • Turnover and staffing shortages?

  • Growing expenses decreasing your operating margins?

  • Competitors threatening your market share ?

  • Strained relationships with your frontline clinicians?

Imagine your organization filled with:

  • Empowered Clinicians

  • Deeply engaged in work they love

  • Committed to your strategic initiatives

  • Supporting success across your entire enterprise

What impact would that have on....

  • staff shortages

  • clinician disengagement,

  • patient frustrations,

  • quality and safety issues, and

  • financial margins?

How much more effectively could you compete in your marketplace?

Leadership is the most important factor in achieving change to meet today’s extraordinary challenges.


You can beat burnout and

build your bottom line.


It all depends on you, and

how you choose to lead.

"Dr. DeChant was the fire-starter for our system’s culture change in prioritizing physician and provider wellbeing work when he spoke with our system executive leadership in 2018, including me. His compelling message moved us to prioritize it, get organized around it, and ultimately identify the systematic ways we could improve it. While many hands have been on the work since then, and the work is not done, Dr. DeChant’s vision got us moving down the path."

Can we return joy to patient care and ensure financial viability for healthcare organizations?

Most people don’t think it’s possible. I do.


We've heard the statement “no margin, no mission.” However, consider if it read “no mission, no margin.” We need to pursue both to be effective.


Based on Dr. DeChant's 30 years of patient care and operational leadership experience, as well as executive coaching health systems leaders and writing Preventing Physician Burnout, he has determined that a five-step plan is necessary to cure what ails failing systems and aids in Physician Wellness.
