McLaren Health Care today opened its Revenue Cycle Operations office, which will house the health system’s entire billing and processing department, adding 300 jobs to Shelby Township.
McLaren chose to keep all jobs within the system by not outsourcing these positions to a third-party vendor and no jobs have been eliminated in the centralization of McLaren’s revenue cycle.
“A centralized approach leads to more efficient procedures — less duplication and overlapping of responsibilities and inconsistent processes,” says Harry Crane, vice president of revenue cycle at McLaren Health Care. “McLaren Health Care has expanded rapid across the state. Different processes across geographically-dispersed locations has the potential for lost revenue and costs that could ultimately impact resources at the bedside. This centralization is a move to ensure that impact does not happen within McLaren.”
The first wave of about 100 employees from McLaren Macomb, McLaren Port Huron, McLaren Oakland, and Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Center began today with a second wave of approximately 200 employees scheduled to begin in April.
McLaren Health Care is leasing the 57,000 sq. ft., building from F.J. Associated. Renovations were a collaboration between architect Pace-Howe Design, contractor Kramer Management Group and builder Team Rule.
