What our clients are saying about Via Healthcare Consulting

“Health care is a dynamic, evolving industry. Having the expert guidance of Via Healthcare managing our governing board is invaluable. We know our board is getting the information they need, when they need it. The agendas are streamlined so our trustees spend more time discussing, not reading. This service has greatly enhanced our board’s productivity and effectiveness.”

R. Guy Hudson, M.D. | CEO Swedish Health System

“With the growing complexity of health care and increasing demands on their boards’ time and expertise, healthcare leaders rely on the AHA to help ensure their trustees are receiving timely education. We, in turn, collaborate with experts like the team at Via to help supply educational materials to our members on the issues and topics that matter today.”

Sue Ellen Wagner | Vice President Trustee Engagement and Strategy, American Hospital Association

“Collaborating with the experts at Via Healthcare has resulted in enhanced board education, board leadership development, board assessment and overall board effectiveness. Their team of expert staff and use of modern technology tools demonstrates their commitment to providing leading practices in healthcare governance.”

Pam Arledge | Director Community Governance Services, Providence

"We wanted to take our board to the next level in terms of our performance. But we didn’t know how to get there. The Via team did. They designed and planned a retreat that provided us with the tools and practices to enhance our ability to engage and get into some substantive discussion on the challenges our organization is facing and what is needed to be fully prepared well into the future. Via’s work was absolutely invaluable in accomplishing this. We will definitely be asking Via to provide more board retreats."

Rebecca Fox | President & CEO Northwest Kidney Centers
“Via worked with our executive team and board to craft a strategic plan that set our organization on the right track. We had great success in implementing the strategic plan that Via helped us develop and are now working with them on a third cycle. Their approach has been what was needed to move us forward. Via has been a terrific strategic planning partner for us.”

"I engaged Via Healthcare Consulting to help discover successes and opportunities within our imaging joint venture boards. They created a survey that allowed us to poll the board of directors members, so we had more understanding of functionality. The Via team is fantastic to work with, they are reliable, knowledgeable, professional, and instill confidence throughout the process. I hope to continue to work with them in the future to help empower our governance."
Jane Turlo, MBA | Executive Director
Ambulatory Imaging & Ambulatory Care Network, Providence
"I was searching for a consultant with expertise in academic medical centers and came upon Via through a series of recommendations. From the onset of early conversations with the principal consultant, I knew Via would be the consulting firm who could facilitate my vice chair retreat to help us develop a transformative five-year strategic plan for my department. The time with Via was invaluable in developing a mission statement, vision, and objectives. The Via team we worked with was personable, energetic, knowledgeable, engaging and are clearly experts in developing strategic plans. We are continuing to seek their guidance to move our plan forward. The experience has exceeded my expectations."

"Kara Witalis and Via Healthcare Consulting were a pleasure to work with. Kara came on-site and provided an excellent hospital trustee educational seminar. The attendees were from rural locations and Kara had a personalized approach that allowed her to connect with them right away. She provided best practices and case studies that helped the trustees with real-world application. We would definitely recommend Kara and Via Healthcare Consulting."
