Foley Rejoins Huron Consulting Group’s Huron Healthcare Practice

Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced that William T. Foley has rejoined the Company as a managing director in its Huron Healthcare practice focused on public healthcare systems, hospitals and academic medical centers.

“The financial pressures are mounting for both healthy and underperforming hospitals, and providers are trying to determine how they fit into the new healthcare landscape. Challenges including rapid consolidation of providers, declining reimbursement from payers and the transition from volume to value have been anticipated but now hospitals are forced to deal with this new reality,” said Gordon Mountford, executive vice president, Huron Healthcare. “Bill is well known for his role in leading complex public, private not-for-profit, and for profit healthcare systems, and we are pleased to welcome him back to the Huron Healthcare team.”

Foley, who was with Huron Healthcare from 2007 to 2009, has more than 40 years of experience in healthcare leadership. He has successfully run complex healthcare systems and academic medical centers. Foley rejoins Huron Healthcare from Vanguard Health Systems where he served as president of the Chicago market. Vanguard, acquired by Tenet Healthcare Corporation earlier this year, was one of the first health systems to receive approval as an accountable care organization (ACO) in Illinois. Prior to that, Foley was the chief executive officer of Cook County Health and Hospitals System , the third largest public healthcare system in the country.

At Huron Healthcare, Foley will work closely with public sector clients and their boards to develop solutions to manage performance improvement, strategy development and deployment, and governance. He is an experienced executive consultant and while previously at Huron Healthcare, he led the successful turnaround of Natividad Medical Center, realizing more than a $30 million financial improvement during the two and a half year engagement.
