Alvarez & Marsal has recently added healthcare expert Donald Casey to its North American team. Casey, who joins from IPO4Health, will from the firm’s base in Chicago, be responsible for growing the service portfolio and market footprint in the healthcare industry.
Donald Casey has approximately 20 years of high-level clinical, senior leadership and consulting experience. He has worked with nearly 150 hospitals and health systems throughout the U.S., helping them to enhance quality of care, improve the value of service, ensure proper cost-of-care investments, provide for value creation and facilitate accountability. He specialises in medical staff leadership and accountability practices, population health management for chronic illnesses and procurement contracts for both commercial and government payers. His experience in addition extends to the managed care arena – he has among others served as a member of the Quality Improvement Oversight Committee for Horizon Blue Cross in New Jersey and as medical advisor for the Central States Southeast and Southwest Health and Welfare Fund.
Before joining Alvarez & Marsal, Casey consulted for hospitals and health systems as principal of the firm IPO4Health, which he founded following his tenure as Chief Medical Officer (CMO) at the Clinically Integrated Network at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. He also held the role of system CMO, among other titles, at Atlantic Health System (AHS) in New Jersey; Catholic Healthcare Partners (now Mercy Health) in Cincinnati; and the Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care.
“Health provider organisations continue to seek the help of outside experts as they work through Affordable Care Act provisions driving the measurement of quality through outcomes,” says Guy Sansone, head of A&M’s Healthcare Industry Group. “With his broad range of clinical and administrative skills, Don will be a tremendous resource for our clients as they pursue ways to achieve lower costs in conjunction with optimal, effective and high-quality care delivery.”
Casey holds a bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College, an MD from the University of Cincinnati, a master’s in public health from Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, and an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a Certified Physician Executive of the American Association of Physician Leadership (AAPL), and a Distinguished Fellow of the American College of Medical Quality (ACMQ).
Next to his professional employment at Alvarez & Marsal, Casey currently serves as adjunct Faculty at Thomas Jefferson University School of Population Health and at Loyola of Chicago Quinlan School of Business’ Healthcare Management Executive Education division. In recent years he has published more than 75 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters in publications including the Journal of the American Medical Association, New England Journal of Medicine and Annals of Internal Medicine.
