Abstract:

The Department of Veteran Affairs VA established the Capital Asset Realignment for Enhanced Services CARES program in 2000 to improve its efficiency. As part of CARES, the VA proposed closing the Waco, TX hospital and dispersing its services elsewhere. Currently, the VA has established a system to seek stakeholder input to ensure veterans needs are being met and ensure the success of CARES. All organizations have stakeholders, which influence every issue and attempt to align the organization with its own goals. As such, they must be recognized and evaluated for their potential to support or threaten the organization. A stakeholder analysis was conducted to ascertain the external environment and ultimately be incorporated into the strategic plan for the Waco Medical Center.
