USACS Executive Coaching Program

US Acute Care Solutions empowers leaders to find and enact solutions for themselves and their organizations through its Executive Coaching Program. Sometimes a coach is simply a sounding board. Other times, the coach facilitates clarity and provides focus and direction in how to move forward.

Empowering Leaders

USACS is proud to offer to our hospital partners its Executive Coaching program. An executive coach works with high potential professionals to help them gain self-awareness, clarify goals and achieve objectives.  

Executive coaching is not mental health counseling or business consulting; rather, the coach’s primary role is to unlock the client’s potential and help the executive meet his or her goals while leading the client to the best personal answers. 


Benefits of coaching

Personalized coaching is excellent for developing leaders who are ready to take the next step in their careers and who want to grow in every area of their lives.

Coaching gives clients:

  • A sounding board 
  • A model for the client’s other relationships 
  • Support, structure, and regular meetings 
  • An integration of value-driven goals 
  • Effective action and direction 
  • A catalyst to prepare the individual for success in every area of their lives 

Who needs a coach?

  • Executives looking to – and willing to – sharpen their skills, weigh difficult options, and make hard choices 
  • Site directors working to balance the needs and demands of their constituents 
  • Developing leaders determining their optimal career plans and how to execute 
  • Providers on formal improvement plans who are serious about exploring ways to address and overcome performance deficiencies
