Our Story

Quaternary Healthcare Consultancy, LLC is a prominent Perioperative & Procedural Services consultant advisory group with a singular mission: to forge strategic partnerships with hospitals in the U.S. and their executive leaders. Our primary objective is to comprehensively assess the unique clinical and operational challenges faced by healthcare institutions and to craft innovative solutions tailored to their specific needs.

Our Founder possesses a remarkable legacy in the healthcare landscape, with over three decades of hospital clinical and operational experience. Furthermore, our Founder brings to the table a wealth of knowledge derived from sixteen years of ascending the ranks of healthcare leadership in C-Suite positions, gaining deep insights into operational intricacies and the art of transformation. As one of only a handful of COO's in the U.S., whose sole oversight focused only on the operations of Periop and Procedural Services, a very unique and laser-focused position, that ensured the organization thrived, given Periop/Procedural departments generate 60-70% of the organizations contribution margin.

This breadth of experience positions us to offer a uniquely insightful perspective on the challenges and opportunities faced by hospitals, enabling us to empower our clients with the tools they need to achieve lasting and impactful change.

Our approach to creating transformative change in the healthcare landscape is multifaceted. It begins with conducting a comprehensive and in-depth assessment of your healthcare organization, meticulously examining clinical practices and operational intricacies. We place significant emphasis on data-driven decision-making, ensuring that our recommendations are not only insightful but also firmly grounded in empirical evidence. This empirical approach, tailored specifically to the healthcare landscape, serves as the foundation for our innovative solutions.
