Colin’s background in working closely with care delivery teams and advising senior leaders at healthcare organizations provides him with a thorough understanding of the challenges that organizations face in delivering excellent healthcare. He takes a data-driven approach to solving complex strategic issues and works closely with clients as a knowledgeable adviser as they make tough decisions. He is passionate about helping client organizations provide better care at lower costs while they increase the health of the communities they serve.

At ECG, Colin has worked with clients on a number of strategic and financial projects. Before joining the firm, Colin worked at Harborview Medical Center, a large academic hospital and a Level I Trauma Center. There he managed national clinical research projects in the intensive care units, working closely with care teams, patients, and families to ensure smooth operations of clinical trials. His work on one project implementation at Harborview led to the hospital enrolling more patients than any other site nationally. In addition, Colin worked with Providence Health & Services, a large Catholic nonprofit health system, to design a new leadership development pipeline program as well as a communication tool for the organization to use to track strategic alignment across its entities.
