The background info just gives you an idea of what you are writing about. The case assignment is what you will be writing about. Please expand on that information. Also please do not forget to fill out the Column A in the survey portion of the uploaded file. Furthermore, emphasis should be inputted on applying what you already know to the task of developing an individual project that reflects synthesis, integration, and real-life application (action plans). 2. As the environment is of a real-life project team, you will be assessed as to how well you present your work to your company and peers (writing and presentations). Background 1. 1. The Mission Viejo Medical Center (in the city of Mission Viejo, California) comprises two geographically adjacent institutions: a. Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center: Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center ( and b. Children’s Hospital at Mission (CHM): Children’s Hospital at Mission (CHM) 2. The two hospitals serve — within less than a 10-mile radius — the populations of the following nine municipalities: Aliso Viejo, Ladera Ranch, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, and San Juan Capistrano. 3. Retirement Communities: a. The city of Laguna Woods (, is home to “Leisure World” (, a retirement community of over 23,000 senior (55 years and above) residents. b. The city of Mission Viejo is home to “Casta Del Sol,” a retirement community of more than 3,000 senior (55 years and above) residents. 4. Following the example and success of integrating a special CHOC – children’s hospital within the Mission Viejo Hospital, it is suggested for the purpose of MHA599 only, that an additional newhospital wing be built, catering to the special needs of the senior population, to be named: “Golden Age Hospital (GAH)”. 5. The “MHA599 Consulting Team (MHA599CT)” has been tasked to research and develop a project feasibility plan for the future GAH Case Assignment 1. 1. 1. The External Environment – Data Gathering a. Search the Web and gather relevant general information regarding hospitals for seniors and direct data pertaining to the external environment of the proposed GAH b. The proposed points below are just “starter points” for you to expound upon and add to as you see fit. c. Common medical conditions of seniors: i. Overall health status ii. Unique illnesses iii. Other d. Medical institutions for seniors: i. Types of institutions and clinics serving seniors (their size per population served) ii. Types of special services provided for seniors and catering to their needs. iii. Length-of-stay of seniors at various hospitals. iv. Other e. Local (Mission Viejo area) City demographics: i. Can be obtained from but not limited to: ii. Input the nine municipalities (one by one) in the search box. iii. Scroll through the various data sets, and glean the relevant information: Population, Gender, Age, Household income, Race, Other. iv. Consolidate all nine city data sets into one table, total where appropriate 2. Based on the data gathered and the general picture you have obtained, we will now focus on direct market research and segmentation of the senior community in the Mission Viejo area. 3. In order to do so, you will need to define/address the following points: a. Who are your target market subjects? b. Where are they located? c. What special needs do they require? d. What special medical/health services do they wish to get? e. What type of physician specialization would they like to have? f. Locations: Do they prefer a single medical center (MC) hospital location, or do they prefer a medical center (MC) hospital and a community clinic (CC)? g. Other. 4. Survey Questionnaire: a. Complete the following proposed survey table – column A, that you plan to use in order to obtain the preferences and perceptions of the seniors of your target segment, assume n=500. (Click the link to access the GAH Project tables.) b. Your instructor will comment on your table and fill out column B (the average response score of the 500 subjects) in his feedback to you, on the basis of which you will be able to further develop your project plan
