TheEstablishment of Departmental in a Rural Healthcare

Farndaleand Hope-Hailey (2009) ascertain that organizationsthat encourage involvement for new ideas and activities within itsdepartmental often attract attention from its clients, and itsservice providers enjoy the benefits that associates with the currentopportunities in the organization. It is evident that establishing ahealthcare institution (Meridian Healthcare Center) in the rural areawill be of great significant to meet the patients’ needs. WhenMeridian Healthcare Center expound on its spheres of operationalactivities through expanding departmental will benefit the communityas well as the institution itself. Defining the hospital’sdepartmental framework on the duties of each segment serves best forthe achievement of the goals set to meet the clients’ needs in therural area through involving every member in decision-making process(Millsand Spencer, 2005).The functions of the relevant Departmental that is aimed to increaseservice delivery to patients in the rural area are explained asfollow:


ClinicalNutrition Department

Thisdepartment will have full responsibility for providing patients withproper recommendations on the nutritional dietary. The majority ofthe rural individuals do ignore the dietary practices, and goodnutritional value must form part of children’s growth as well asadults thus the essence of this department. All parents who may seekthe necessary healthful diet for their family members, therefore,will report to this department for proper guidelines. Living a safeand healthy life for rural members is dependent on how MeridianHealthcare Center will inculcate proper nutritional balance to themembers of the society with the help of clinical nutritiondepartment. A healthy community should reciprocate with theproductivity hence, the created department will ensure that all theservices rendered to its members ensure a healthy diet (Heyberger,2014).The department will also reinforce good nutritional teachings tochildren at their tender age for them to acquire the right knowledgeon healthy foods that build a healthy lifestyle.


Thisdepartment aims at reducing the magnitude of the mortality rateamongst children within the rural community. It will also reduce theimpacts of injuries and accidents that most of the children may face.All kinds of medical services that are rendered to children fromtheir infancy stage to their young adult stage will both prevent themortality rates and as well as creating an opportunity for thesurrounding community who seek medical attention for their children(Boehmerand Karpa, 2011).Since the upcoming population in the region comprises of a youngfamily, the hospital must readjust its internal organizationprimarily pediatric department to meet the demand for child medicalcare.

Departmentof Clinical Pharmacology

Afterobtaining drug prescription from a medical officer on the drug to betaken, this department shall issue members with the right drugswithin the organization to limit cases related to drug purchasesoutside the hospital. Greaveset al., (2013) state that thedepartment can enhances time management as well as improved drugdelivery to patients of the rural area.


Inconclusion, it is of great value to estimate and compare the benefitsversus setbacks that come by initiating departmental activities inhealthcare institutions. For this project, the benefits outperformthe setbacks that come by creating other departments in MeridianHealthcare Center. The business plan aims to create convenienceservices to the community while acquiring medical care within theremote areas. The creation of hospital department’s in thecommunity will meet the need of the members of the community who arecharacterized by a larger percentage of younger people and partlyaging generation.
