About The Company

Asclepins, a multi-specialty hospital run by doctors, has ~1,000 beds under their supervision. Asclepins was purchased by a mid-cap private equity fund. The Asclepins Board tasked Practus with assessing the hospital’s finance team’s competence to enable the business to scale up before beginning on its expansion strategy.​

Practus’ Role

  • The F&A team’s “As-Is” roles, time allocation to tasks, and output were all documented.​
  • Key finance professionals, including the CFO, had their performance management processes and remuneration/variable pay structures reviewed​.
  • The F&A team’s cost and skill mix were compared to peer firms.​
  • An interim (9-month) and final “To-Be” F&A organogram was suggested.​
  • Practus and all of its reporters now have smart goals.​
  • A 12-month financial road map is suggested.​

Impact Delivered

  • The cost-to-revenue ratio of F&A employees was cut from 3.1 percent to 2.6 percent over a 12-month period.​
  • The CFO’s interests were matched with Asclepins’ business objections by increasing the variable compensation component of remuneration from 8% to 21%.​
  • Over the course of a year, we reduced transaction processing time from 55% to 42% while increasing analysis time from 9% to 21%.​
