Our Clients

What our clients are saying:

"The 64-slice CT project you ran for the hospital allowed us to implement state-of-the-art technology quicker, cheaper, and more hassle-free than we could possibly have hoped."
~ Benjamin Roach, MD Physician Bon Secours Kentucky Health System

"We’ve seen more than a 30% increase in Outpatient MRI volume since you’ve started. ... the improvements you’ve implemented indicate that we’re on track to see a $1 million improvement in Radiology in this first year; you’ve been able to add at least $700,000 to the Radiology bottom line in the past 8 months."
~ Arun G. Patel, MD Chairman of Radiology
Bon Secours Cottage Health Services


"The breadth of expertise provided by Ivy Ventures related to imaging services business development including participation in the Michigan Certificate of Need program and favorable negotiation of vendor contracts were invaluable."

I would also like to thank you and recognize your strategic contributions in developing market share and improving physician satisfaction in a very competitive southeast Michigan market. Concurrent to strategy implementation, Ivy’s participation and contributions to our business development planning team was greatly appreciated."
~ Cathy Newhouse, EVP, Operations
Bon Secours Cottage Health Services

~ Kevin Halter, VP, Planning & Operations
Bon Secours Kentucky Health System

"I can honestly state that our partnership with Ivy Ventures to introduce the [SNAPCare ®] program to our medical staff was the best growth initiative we had in 2008." "One of the underestimated benefits that we did not consider when evaluating this program [SNAPCare ®] is the fact it has created a new “channel” of communication between physician practices and the hospital."

"I think the results are spectacular. Anxious to catch up and discuss other projects that you could assist with. Fantastic work."

"Ivy's rigorous staffed sales program helped us identify new sources of business, backfill the loss of our largest practice, and then grow outpatient diagnostic volume in their first year. After our successful pilot, we expanded our relationship with Ivy to include three additional Vanguard health systems throughout the country. As the Regional CFO of a leading national healthcare corporation, I also find tremendous value in Ivy Ventures' strategic and operational programs to increase the utilization of our existing assets.

Most of Ivy's recommendations do not require significant capital investment. Instead their programs are practical and designed to solve specific operational problems with a focus on quality, customer service and profitability."

"Saint Vincent was a challenging pilot for Ivy because it is located in the state of Massachusetts where 40% of care is performed at academic medical centers. Furthermore, Saint Vincent Hospital’s largest referring practice, which comprised 38% of the hospital’s outpatient radiology business, purchased its own imaging center a month after Ivy started.

"Appreciate the work we were able to perform together... we made great progress in reaching out to referring physicians and clinics to ensure high quality, effective imaging services. There is much still to be done, but the foundation is laid for continued improvements in our efforts to meet the needs of patients and providers." ~ Bob Cash, Operations Officer

"It has been a pleasure working with you over the past several years... your team [has] done an outstanding job for Intermountain, and I will miss working with you. " ~ Brandon McBride, Operations Officer

"Although frequently ranked as one of the nation's best integrated healthcare systems, we struggled for many years to address issues of physician outreach, patient access, and customer service. We began working with Ivy Ventures at a time when our imaging operations were at a critical crossroads: our Radiologists had recently opened a fully owned MRI center near one of our hospitals and we were in the process of opening our first outpatient imaging center. Ivy's innovative approach of managing a staffed sales program and identifying key operational and strategic projects helped us take full advantage of our investment in imaging assets by growing high-margin volumes."

"In particular, the SNAPCare program has been a big success in the Intermountain Urban South market. SNAPCare helped us address unique customer service issues with our employed physician network, drastically improved patient and physician access, and grew our imaging market share. We like the SNAPCare program so much that we recently received approval to add Intermountain employees and other hospital service lines besides imaging to the program." ~ Cliff Park, Operations Officer

"I appreciate the time and effort you and your colleagues from Ivy dedicated to helping us at Intermountain Healthcare. I think we accomplished a lot of good things and you guys helped us understand how better to serve and coordinate with our referring physician offices." ~ James G. Sheets, CEO/Administrator, LDS Hospital

"Ivy has been an ideal partner bringing expertise to the table with an ability to integrate Ivy’s strength into Intermountain’s strength. As a result we have been very successful in enhancing our relationships with physicians and growing our imaging services." ~ Rob Allen, Vice President, Park City-Heber Region, Outreach and Clinical Services & CEO, Park City Medical Center

"Everyone in the Ivy group that we have worked with has been exceptional in their ability to take a creative, flexible, local approach to our issues. While the value of the Sales and Marketing program is clear and demonstrable, I feel that the analytic work that your group does is equally if not more valuable."

"As you know, we are in a very competitive market where the University of Virginia Health System is a very formidable competitor with tremendous resources. Ivy’s ability to help us focus on and improve customer service has allowed us to make tangible advances in the fight to win market share from this highly regarded academic medical center."

"The Ivy Ventures engagement has been tremendously successful, our scheduling process has gone from the worst in central Ohio to Best in Class."

"My experience with Ivy has spanned over a decade and multiple health systems. In each setting, Ivy has proven to deliver both programmatically and financially with highly qualified teams. I can recommend Ivy without reservation."

"We are thrilled to have Ivy Ventures as our strategic partner to grow our diagnostic imaging service line and market share in Honolulu. We decided to engage Ivy Ventures because of the breadth of services they offer from strategic visioning/development to tactical sales, marketing and operational improvements. We look forward to utilizing their expertise to continue to grow our imaging volumes at the newly acquired Queen’s Imaging at Pearlridge and main hospital campus."
