About the Cellular Model

We are rolling out a cellular model where a human resources business partner (HRBP), quality improvement specialist and senior scheduler supports a manager directly on the unit and are part of the leadership team.

This restructuring is all part of the our efforts to provide more supports for managers, a focus for the past few years. Locating supports on site effectively wraps those services around managers and takes specialized (and therefore time-consuming) tasks off their plates and ensures the right person is doing the right job.

While supports are centered around human resources, scheduling and quality improvement right now, other supports such as safety, financial management advisor, educators, payroll, admin and other areas will be added over time. Some of these supports will be shared by several managers. Eventually, all mangers will have a local team structure of supports.
