Adeline Park – PetVet Care Centers

For Adeline Park, bringing an acquisition to completion is as much an art form as it is a science. Which is why, long before any deals are inked, she and her hand-picked team set off on an intensive acquisition process—one where people skills and creativity are equally critical. Not only does the team sit down […]

Alizah Diamond – Regional Cancer Care Associates

As Regional Cancer Care Associates, one of the nation’s largest cancer care networks, began celebrating its fifth year of success in 2016, an ambitious agenda was being readied. At the time, RCCA’s only in-house attorney, Terrill Jordan, was promoted to president and CEO and a search commenced for his legal successor. The ideal candidate would […]

Blaire Bernard – Iora Health

Your physician has made an unsettling diagnosis. It may not be life-threatening, but it needs attention quickly and the care isn’t fully covered by your Medicare insurance plan. The resulting stress—wondering when the bills will arrive, and how to decipher and pay them—is a nerve-wracking experience shared by millions of Americans. Since 2011, Boston-based Iora […]

Christina Steiner – Adeptus Health

When your first job out of law school disappears because the firm goes under before you can even start, your career path gets bumpy. Such was the case for Christina Steiner, who thought she was all set as she graduated law school in 2009. She had a foot in the door at a firm, the […]

Corey Perman – R1 RCM

Rules aren’t always to be railed against. Adhering to them can give a company a competitive edge, especially when it stays ahead of the curve.

David Rose – ProPath

It’s called PAMA, as in the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, but may entail unintended consequences.

Ethan Weitzman – HIDTA

In the Washington, D.C., area, Ethan Weitzman, fights the war on drugs in his own backyard, but he’s not a cop or a first responder. A Baltimore native, he’s chief regulatory compliance officer and general counsel for the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, or HIDTA, which coordinates federal, state and local drug interdiction efforts […]

Fabiola Ferro – Varian Medical Systems

Waking up to address a court case in Colombia; picking up the phone to discuss legal concerns in Argentina after morning coffee; touching base with a client in Paraguay at lunchtime; and catching up with the sales department in Palo Alto, California, by close of business. Such is a pretty diversified—yet typical—day for Fabiola Ferro […]

Greg Bassi – Lumere

It was a process building up for weeks—and like the Tom Petty tune, the waiting was the hardest part. But for Chicago-based Lumere—a provider of evidence-based data and analytics solutions—being acquired in January by Colorado-based Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX)—a healthcare business and data automation company—was worth it.
