With over 17 years in healthcare, including a decade of leading high volume orthopedic and spine service lines to consecutive annual growth and programmatic clinical distinction, Mitch possesses a unique background that includes both business development and operational improvement. Additionally, Mitch brings administrative experience in successfully navigating alternative payment models, an asset that has been valuable in the development and methodology of Mariana Health. His extensive understanding of the modern healthcare landscape offers a detailed, microscopic view of the operational challenges healthcare organizations face.  One aspect that is unique to Mariana Health is the personal, front-line experience in the healthcare industry that both Mitch and Cody bring to the table. We've been in the boardroom, we've sat across from physicians, and we've delivered results.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Mariana Health different than other consulting firms?

Mariana Health has worked, lived and breathed everything that our clients have done. With over 30+ years of hospital and healthcare experience, we know exactly what our clients are facing, their growth pressures and challenges. Additionally, due to our small size, we are especially nimble and can react to the shifting sands of healthcare quicker than large, immobile firms. And with the front line experience, Mariana Health isn’t going to just analyze and “suggest” the changes and strategies your organization should implement. We will do the real work to implement our suggestions and execute towards results. We know (from experience) that the execution is key and where most organizations and consultants fall short.

What does your typical client look like?

Mariana Health works with ALL types of healthcare organizations. Clients include some of the largest healthcare systems in the world, individual community-based hospitals, start-ups and private practices with less than a handful of providers. Mariana Health prides itself on being attainable for any healthcare company in need of growth.

What if my healthcare organization doesn’t have much, or anything, in terms of data?  Can you still help?

Absolutely. Many of our clients are just now understanding the need to manage and collect their own clinical data and Mariana Health is uniquely qualified to help vet and manage the proper data strategy. Additionally, we collaborate with clients who prefer to manage growth in ways that may not include data in which case, we will develop and execute smart strategies that might include other tactics.

Where are you based?

We have offices in Denver, CO and Nashville, TN but we collaborate with clients all over the country.
