How We Help
Optimizing the portfolio

We assist organizations in assessing their overall portfolio of services and locations to identify areas for targeted growth, partnership, or divestiture.

Growth strategy

We help leadership assess multiple pathways and channels for growth, including independent market expansion; growth through partnership; and inorganic growth opportunities through acquisitions. We help leadership evaluate opportunities across the continuum of care, including primary care, diagnostics and testing, acute care, post-acute care, and payer partnerships.

We draw upon our strategic and financial planning expertise to model potential outcomes for various strategic options, helping leadership assess the opportunities to identify and implement the preferred direction for their organizations.
