Personally invested in your future

By combining our expertise across the full continuum of healthcare services, we provide the personal service you need. Our team is hands-on and knows collaboration is key for success.

We also know it can be difficult to have foresight of the future when your team is busy coping with today’s concerns, so we’re here to help lift that burden. “Our team always adopts a broader perspective, helping you envision what your organization and the healthcare landscape will look like in the years ahead,” says Matt Weekley, our healthcare practice leader. “We understand how important implementable solutions are to your success and, ultimately, to sustainable change.”

Our clients say

Plante Moran has delivered above and beyond my expectations. Their staff is very skilled as well as personable, their audit process is efficient and very thorough, and their reimbursement specialists have identified significant opportunities for additional Medicare reimbursement for our hospitals. We’ve also benefited from financial benchmarking Plante Moran has provided us in relation to our peers. In addition, they are well-versed in big-picture healthcare industry trends and federal legislation. They keep our board and management team briefed in these important areas. Some of the larger firms we’ve used in the past tend to get bogged down in the details of the audit and don’t address bigger picture items. Plante Moran’s audit process is efficient, well-run, well-organized and very thorough. It’s much different than we’ve had before — in a good way.
