Keeping your patients — and your bottom line — healthy

For today’s hospital and health system providers, positioning for long-term success in a value-based world requires significant investment in processes, technology, and programs designed to serve patients in the appropriate facility, at the most efficient cost.

Our audit, tax, reimbursement, and consulting experts will help you effectively balance risk and opportunity to reduce costs, improve outcomes, and achieve your goals. With clients ranging from community hospitals to multibillion-dollar health systems, we have the experience and expertise to keep your bottom line healthy. And, we don’t just tell you what to do and leave. Our experts work shoulder to shoulder with you to implement change and reach your long-term goals.

We’re there: when and where you need us

Sustainable change in healthcare is dependent on collaboration and personal relationships. We provide a personal touch to each engagement and work side by side with you to deliver tailored services that keep your patients — and your bottom line — healthy.

Our experts have been in your shoes; many have held similar positions in health systems, so we know you don’t need a detached “consultant.” You need someone working in the trenches with you, seeing the effect, firsthand, of new regulations, laws, and workforce struggles. Duane Fitch, our health system strategy and operations leader, says “It’s easy to sit behind a computer and tell someone what they should do. That’s not what we do. We don’t hide away; we’re alongside you, helping you enact real change to see real results.”

Our clients say

Plante Moran has been much more than an auditing firm for McLaren Health Corporation. During the past several years, we have experienced significant growth through  acquisitions. The Plante Moran team has assisted us with multiple due diligence activities on these acquisitions as well as numerous bond issuances. The knowledge they provided to us as a result of their analyses meant that we were able to effectively evaluate the risks and rewards of moving forward with these organizations. We wouldn’t work with an advisory firm that couldn’t deliver at Plante Moran’s level. They’ve been a vital partner in the successful incorporation of these affiliates into our organization.
