I’m excited to be a part of ECG because I enjoy developing innovative solutions to complex challenges. Health reform will create continuous change in the industry for the foreseeable future, and I’m excited to be able to think about the new issues we face every day.

Mark’s strong command of strategic planning principles for the healthcare industry enables him to give specific and actionable insights to the leadership of hospitals and health systems. His background, which includes financial planning for both payment and delivery of care, gives him unique insight into the value of financial analytics and robust modeling when health organizations are facing consolidation or exploring collaboration with a health system. Clients appreciate Mark’s ability to analyze results and implement change quickly, all while managing the diverse relationships within these complex transactions.
