CON Case Studies

MRI

Karmanos Cancer Institute
After a decade of unsuccessful effort, Karmanos Cancer Institute engaged Wiener Associates to help design and implement a plan to achieve separation within the existing regulatory structure. Within a year, we helped them achieve that goal.

Karmanos Cancer Center
Karmanos Cancer Center had been working for over a decade to become a separately licensed, independent hospital on the campus of the Detroit Medical Center. Certificate of Need hurdles continued to create barriers for the organization until they brought in RWC Advocacy to assist. In less than 1 year Melissa and her team were able to devise a strategy which provided Karmanos with a separate license and complete autonomy from the DMC.

Allegiance Health
Melissa and her team worked with Allegiance Health to launch the 33rd open heart surgery program in the State of Michigan in a climate when many forces were working to prevent any new programs in the State. This was a high priority for Allegiance after suffering a defeat during a similar attempt on their own decades earlier.

Oaklawn Hospital
After many years of working to meet the requirements to initiate a fixed MRI service at Oaklawn Hospital without success, Oaklawn hired RWC Advocacy to work with them on a strategy to modify the CON standards to accommodate their needs and recently opened their fixed MRI service.

Experience

  • Hospital Bed Replacements, Relocations, and Acquisitions
  • Initiations, Acquisitions, and Replacements of Nursing Homes and Psychiatric Hospitals

After two years, millions of taxpayer dollars & multiple congressional investigations confirming there was no collusion, I’m pleased this report has concluded.

The Special Counsel finished his work without any DOJ interference, proving Democrats’ speculation was dead wrong.

Thank you to Childs Elementary School for welcoming me in to read to this great group of 2nd graders. #MarchisReadingMonth

Even a slight rise in regional temperature can have a large impact on our Great Lakes. So many Michigan families rely on the Great Lakes to provide them with food, water, and even an income. Protecting these waters also protects Michiganders.
