Survey results: Week of April 14-20, 2020

L.E.K. Consulting’s survey “COVID-19 Impact on U.S. Hospitals” tracks COVID-19’s effect on hospital staff morale and inpatient capacities, key areas of concern and actions taken to handle the outbreak. This week’s survey also includes new questions about when hospitals expect to ramp-up elective procedures, strategic and operational changes that hospitals expect to make post-COVID-19, and changes hospitals would like manufacturers to provide after the outbreak is over. We plan to administer the survey every one to two weeks, with each edition offering a glimpse into hospital sentiment over time. 

Stay tuned for future updates

We plan to poll hospital stakeholders next week to get their perspective on the impact of COVID-19 on hospital operations. We will share our next bulletin with you via email, but feel free to also check our website ( We welcome your feedback on this topic and other topics for further discussion and evaluation in the weeks ahead.

Thank you, and please stay safe.
