  • Copies of staff CVs
  • Full outline of services provided, programs offered, etc.
  • Special procedures offered
  • Special equipment
  • Hours of operation
  • Budget reports
  • Revenue reports
  • Square footage and layout
  • Opportunities for growth
  • Challenges or roadblocks
  • Research activities
  • Educational opportunities
  • Department turnover and recruitment activities
