SAVANNAH, GA, USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE(TM) -- AUGUST 22, 2006: Time is running out. Don't miss this opportunity to take your organization's improvement efforts to new heights. Does quality improvement cost money? Not with Lean Six Sigma. Fact is, if applied correctly, Lean Six Sigma will eliminate waste and reduce variation, resulting in improvements in quality, safety, patient and staff satisfaction, efficiency, and operating expenses. So profound is the impact of Lean Six Sigma that the cost of our course has a multifold return - realized within months of course completion.

Our 16-day Lean Six Sigma for Healthcare Black Belt Certification Course will guide you through strategic improvement in quality, safety, service, and cost. Best of all, the course is held in Savannah, Georgia, named by The New York Times as one of the world's top 10 trendy travel hot spots.

This course will provide you with the disciplined methods and tools for fundamentally redesigning how you provide care, as well as the knowledge you need to begin the work of transforming your organization into a Lean Enterprise. And while financial return may not be your primary motivation for pursuing Lean Six Sigma, you should nonetheless expect a sustainable 2% to 5% reduction in annual operating expenses.


Upon completion of the course, you will be dually certified by the Innovations Institute and Juran Institute, one of the world's premier Lean Six Sigma firms, ensuring that your certification conforms to the highest quality standards.
