Mike is passionate about improving the healthcare delivery system and enhancing access to the patients who need it most. In his career as a strategy consultant, he has coordinated closely with members of hospital leadership to create the vision and supporting goals that help strengthen the market position and financial viability of their organizations. Many of these engagements have been internal efforts, but he has also worked to develop partnerships and affiliations between multiple entities to better serve a shared population. Before he joined ECG, he was at Kurt Salmon Health Care, where he helped develop the space plan for a renovated intervention suite and programming for a new ambulatory surgery center for the University of Maryland Medical System. Increases in outpatient volumes and preparations for bundled payments are expected to grow surgical revenues by 35% over the next 10 years.
