Students can practice and sharpen their managerial skills by applying what they learn to realistic scenarios. Instructors can use the cases in this book as a platform for helping students understand the interplay of factors that influence the development of healthcare strategy.

Now in its second edition, The Middleboro Casebook offers a series of flexible, multipart, and integrated cases that bring to life eight healthcare organizations—two hospitals, a long-term care facility, a home health agency, two physician group practices, a community mental health center, and a county health department—in the fictional town of Middleboro and its surrounding communities.

Created with today’s healthcare issues and realities in mind, each organization’s demographic, socioeconomic, and environmental characteristics are described in detail, including its:

History Governance Organizational structure and strategies Programs and services Finance Operational challenges

In this updated edition, all cases have been thoroughly revised to reflect changes in legislation, economic developments, and industry trends. All data have been updated or modified, and new organizational entities have been added, including a new case that portrays a community mental health center.

The Middleboro Casebook can be used in undergraduate- and graduate-level health administration programs, as well as in business schools and public health or public administration programs. The book works equally well in capstone courses and multiple foundational courses, or as a recurring element woven throughout a program’s entire curriculum.
