BKD Ranks No. 10 on List of Largest Health Care Consulting Firms
NATIONAL OFFICE – BKD CPAs and Advisors ranked No. 10 on Modern Healthcare’s annual survey of the largest health care management consulting firms in the country. The rankings were released in the magazine’s August issue.
BKD moved into the Top 10 after ranking No. 15 and No. 11 the last two years, reflecting the growing momentum of the firm’s health care practice including its established Regulatory Reimbursement practice and Health Care Performance Advisory Services (Performance Advisory) practice. BKD was instrumental in helping providers with their immediate and dedicated response in navigating the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and related Provider Relief Funds from the federal CARES Act.
“We’re pleased to be recognized among the top 10 health care consulting practices across our country,” said Danielle Solomon, national health care industry partner. “This is a reflection of our clients’ continued trust in BKD, as well as the firm’s ongoing investments in talent and expertise in order to provide Unmatched Client Service® to health care providers of all sizes and complexities.”
In recent years, BKD has invested in its Performance Advisory practice by bringing on board hospital executives and clinicians to further deepen the firm’s financial, operational and clinical margin improvement repertoire. BKD also has invested in cultivating dedicated leadership for health care consulting, including naming Brad Brotherton as the firm’s first Regulatory & Reimbursement consulting practice leader earlier this year.
“As care delivery challenges and regulatory requirements from COVID-19 lead to increasing and rapidly changing demands, industry leaders and board members are seeking trusted insight and guidance into the current and future health care environment,” said Rob Pruitt, chief practice officer. “BKD has a rich history of investing in and serving the health care industry since our inception in 1923. We will continue our strong commitment to developing health care consulting solutions that provide critical insights to assist our clients as the industry landscape continues to be challenged.”
