Why Sage?

I started Sage Health Strategy in 2012, after a decade of working at one of the largest integrated health systems in the country. During that time, I hired many blue chip consultants to advise us on strategic business matters and many communications firms to help with stakeholder engagement. Unfortunately, I was regularly disappointed. Although bright, engaging individuals, the people staffing our projects had never actually worked for a health system or a health plan. They lacked the ability to integrate their knowledge with actual experience, and it showed.

Sage Health Strategy was created to change this, starting with our name.  The word Sage means “having great wisdom gained from long experience.”  At Sage, we always bring wisdom AND experience to the table. Our leaders have decades of experience at top health systems and health plans. We put that experience to work for you.

We hope you will explore our site and learn more about what we do—and then get ready for a different type of consulting experience. We look forward to working with you.
