As an attorney, consultant and certified valuation analyst with more than 30 years of experience in strategic planning, physician-hospital alignment and the development of progressive physician compensation arrangements, Ron has advised a wide variety of health care organizations — including community health systems, private physician practices and academic medical centers — through periods of transformative change.

She has nearly 30 years of combined industry experience as a registered nurse, in addition to a variety of operational, management and consulting roles. Leveraging this unique breadth of expertise and a deep working knowledge of the evolving provider landscape, Patty will work closely with clients on the design, implementation and management of strategic, performance-driven physician compensation programs. She is also a certified valuation analyst and will assist a growing team of consultants in determining fair market value and commercial reasonableness.
