Thank you for visiting and for your interest in our firm.

I believe physicians are integral to both the clinical and business aspects of healthcare. Healthcare organizations that engage physicians in an authentic way are the best-positioned for industry leadership. I have defined my career by supporting and advising physicians in medical group practices, health systems and provider networks. I strive to support physicians and their organizations by being a knowledgeable and reliable partner. Much of what I do is driving change by building and sustaining high-performing teams that have the talent and discipline needed to create value.

I founded the company in 2010 in response to what I knew to be a growing need among healthcare providers to have access to a trusted, reliable and continuous resource for personalized, accountable and expert business management advice and leadership in a rapidly consolidating industry. Even as a single-member firm, I speak organizationally in terms of “we,” “us,” and “our” because our firm is a stakeholder in our clients’ futures, and they in ours.

“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” -Attributed to Warren Buffett

Determining value is a function of both the customer’s estimation (subjective) and alternatives (relational). To deliver value, an organization must deliver beyond expectation on a variety of shifting measures – all evaluated relative to the offerings of its competitors. Our firm’s core principles are the fundamental beliefs that drive us to deliver value that enables our clients to outperform.

If you are an existing client, business partner or friend, I hope and trust that you have received value in our relationship and that you will consider us for your future needs and for others whom you may refer. If you are evaluating how our firm can meet your needs, we hope you find the content here informative and welcome you to contact us to offer feedback or engage us to be of service.

Welcome!

Sincerely,
Austin Kirkland
Managing Director
