With New Principal, ECG Bolsters Academic Healthcare Division

Boston, MADecember 11, 2017—ECG Management Consultants, a national consulting firm working exclusively with healthcare providers, is pleased to announce that Keith Graff has joined the firm’s Academic Healthcare Division as a principal.

ECG principal and Academic Healthcare Division leader Christopher Collins welcomed Graff and spoke effusively about his work with academic medical centers (AMCs).

“Keith’s experience, collaborative nature, and passion for AMCs makes him a perfect fit with our academic healthcare team,” Collins said. “While he has impressive experience in all three mission areas of academic medicine, he is particularly well known for strategic planning and operations improvement related to the research enterprise. This immediately bolsters our division, which already has leading practices in GME and academic health system strategy.”

A trusted adviser to academic organizations for more than 20 years, Graff has a comprehensive understanding of the challenges faced by AMCs as they navigate the transition to lower cost structures. He comes to ECG from PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he served as a leader of PwC’s Health Industries practice.

At ECG, Graff will partner with leading research organizations as they embark on transformational initiatives, from identifying their strategy to operationalizing their solutions.

“ECG has the only dedicated AMC advisory team in consulting, providing a wide range of innovative strategic and operational engagements,” Graff said. “I look forward to joining the leadership of this dedicated team, and further building out our solutions across the tripartite mission.”
