PYA, ranked by Modern Healthcare as the nation's 11th largest privately owned healthcare consulting firm, also has offices in Atlanta, Austin, Knoxville, and Tampa Bay.

"We have an increasing number of clients in the Midwest and West," PYA President Ed Pershing said. "As we looked to expand our geographic footprint, we began by first finding the right professionals."

"As a result of that search, we are pleased to welcome to PYA three nationally known consultants from the Kansas City area that will be based in our new office. With their leadership and an office in the region, we can better serve our growing client base in those areas."

Jeff Ellis, Martie Ross, and Chris Wilson, formerly of Spencer Fane Britt and Browne, have joined PYA's healthcare consulting staff. 

"Jeff, Martie and Chris bring many years of healthcare consulting and regulatory experience to our firm," said Pershing. "In addition to supporting PYA's Healthcare Advisory Services consulting division, they will also help PYA realize a long-standing goal of creating a new public policy service line for the firm."

Ellis, who earned a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Washburn University, specializes in physician-hospital alignment strategies, healthcare technology solutions, and regulatory compliance. 

Ross works in the areas of regulatory compliance, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, and health network implementation. She holds a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from the University of Kansas.

Wilson earned a Master of Public Health from Boston University and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Colorado, assists clients with clinical integration initiatives, public policy projects, mergers and acquisitions, and governance strategies. He previously was with the Advisory Board Company, a publicly traded healthcare consulting and research firm.
