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.
