Kevin is the leader of ECG's Healthcare – San Francisco practice, and his 15-plus-year consulting career has emphasized hospital strategic planning and business development, physician/hospital relationships, and detailed financial and operational assessments of medical groups/physician networks. As healthcare organizations attempt to position themselves to deliver care in a value-based environment, their leaders turn to Kevin and rely on his strong track record of implementing innovative solutions that foster integration among organizations, services, and clinical programs. Healthcare systems have engaged Kevin to address key strategic issues related to scale and strategic positioning, with matters ranging from acquisitions/partnerships to geographic expansion. Kevin also focuses on assessing, negotiating, and implementing physician/hospital relationships: strategic partnerships, alignment of financial incentives, coverage arrangements, and so forth. His work has helped health systems and medical groups develop integrated service lines and delivery models, while also positioning the organizations to better perform in a value-based environment.
