Project Planning--Phases and Status

A project of this scope involves many details, and careful planning is essential.  We have mapped out various phases.  Many are ongoing and overlap with other phases.

PHASE 1 - Complete

This initial step involved extensive planning and research.  We developed a vision and core principles, conducted feasibility research, wrote a business plan, and did financial analysis and planning.

PHASE 2 - Complete

This step involved actually setting up a legal business, completing necessary legal and tax forms, opening a bank account, establishing legal and professional contacts, and many other details.

PHASE 3 - In progress

Currently we are working on funding.  Because of the nature of our mission, we need to raise funds from our community.  We have set up a funding campaign and are in the process of developing informational and promotional materials.  Though there are many other steps and other phases in progress, most things cannot proceed forward without funding.  We are also looking for people (both physicians and non-physicians) who share our philosophy and core values and would like to invest in this project.  Find out more

PHASE 4 - In progress

This phase involves recruitment of staff, consultants, and other partners.  We have set up our community advisory board--a major step forward.  We are also conducting informational meetings with stakeholders, including midwives, physicians, and other clinicians. Once funding allows, we will hire staff.

PHASE 5 - In progress

This phase involves IT, communications, security, and medical records.  We are in early stages of planning these elements.

PHASE 6 - In progress

Supplies and equipment are the focus of this phase.  We have begun purchasing these items in preparation for launching operations, including our home medical services.

PHASE 7 - In progress

As we move toward launching operations, we need facility space.  Currently, we are renting administrative space.  We hope to soon be looking for a medical facility.


More phases will be described as we come to them.
