Working With Us

At Plante Moran Living Forward, we believe disciplined strategic planning and market analysis are the most important ingredients for a successful project. Too often, organizations find themselves starting in the middle and working backwards, and then wondering why a project isn’t aligned with their financial goals or market characteristics.

Our multidisciplinary team works with you from the very start to deliver thoughtful, upfront, and unbiased planning along with the resources, expertise, and discipline to execute the chosen plan — all while keeping a sharp eye on cost structure, market demand, healthcare reform, changing regulatory environments, and the need to deliver quality resident care.
