What We Offer

SAGE was created as a service to provide leadership essentials, including interim administration and/or management, for entities seeking real-world solutions with experts in a variety of fields.  SAGE is just that – a consulting group composed of experts with successful experience in their fields.  The preponderance of experience available through SAGE Collaborative has been in the area of health care; hospitals, medical practices, public health and related entities profitable, not-for-profit and public health entities. However, our consultants have each worked with entities outside of healthcare and offer unique and varied backgrounds upon which you can rely.

SAGE Collaborative offers a wealth of experience to serve your organization when you need us, no more, no less.

Competing priorities in any organization will challenge even the most experienced among us.  We now offer Executive Coaching as a means to support executives in re-balancing priorities as they move forward with change management, expansion, integration of new laws and rules, compliance requirements, restructuring/reorganizing, integration management, and other critical pressures.  Leadership requires being out-front in daily operations with a confident eye on the future.  We will provide coaching which brings out the best in your executives.
We can serve to ‘fill in’ or to develop and conduct and entire project depending upon your organizations needs. Able to “jump-start” initiatives with experience and commitment, SAGE HealthCare Collaborative will develop the project for you, initiate services during development or retool programs and processes. Depth in physician-hospital relationships, strategic planning, business start-up, operations and quality improvement will provide you with a solid foundation with hard-wired operational processes, to then be managed by your organization.

Our expertise in healthcare leadership, physician-hospital relationships and communication management is used to augment your talent pool to move a project along faster, or to simply do it for you.

SAGE: one venerated for experience, judgment, and wisdom. Our practice is built on the belief that astute leadership inspires success. SAGE offers the benefit of triumphs and struggles gained through decades of experience, knowledge, commitment and collaboration. We are uniquely experienced in Interim Leadership, Organizational Development, Executive Coaching, Legislation and Advocacy, Compliance, Physician Transactions, Hospital and Clinic Administration and Operations, Strategic Planning, Legislation and Advocacy, Public Health Administration, Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations.
