Community Health Systems, Franklin, TN

“Community Health Systems (CHS) and Spectrum Health Partners (SHP) have had a strong strategic relationship for 20 years. CHS has worked with SHP President and CEO Ken Doran and the team he’s assembled through the years as a go-to for assistance with multiple types of facility transactions. The sheer number of transactions over two decades speaks volumes in terms of the deep relationship between CHS and SHP. We have appreciated their commitment to accuracy, efficiency and to helping us achieve our business objectives.”

Quorum Health Corporation, Brentwood, TN

“Quorum Health engaged Spectrum Health Partners (SHP) in March 2021 to evaluate and prepare a Quality of Earnings Report on a targeted acquisition for our health system. I was extremely pleased with the high quality of the report SHP delivered, and also with the value delivered based on their professional fees. SHP’s President and CEO, Ken Doran, and his team prepared and delivered the Quality of Earnings Report six weeks from the start of the engagement, coming in on time and under budget. It’s refreshing to receive such high quality work from an experienced boutique healthcare financial services firm like Spectrum Health Partners at a price point that seemed significantly lower than comparable national firms.”

Alfred Lumsdaine, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer

University of Louisville, Louisville, KY

“Ken Doran and the Spectrum Health Partners (SHP) team were an integral component to the successful outcome of our CommonSpirit Health acquisition – a transaction that was very important not only to University of Louisville (UofL) Health, but to the Louisville metro community at large. Our ability to prevail through arbitration was in large part due to the efforts of SHP. I have known Ken for many years. He is always a pleasure to do business with, and I respect him as a top-notch financial expert in the healthcare mergers and acquisitions arena. I would recommend Ken and SHP to healthcare organizations, without reservation, for any transaction financial consulting needs.”

Tom Miller, Chief Executive Officer

“In our business, there are firms that you just can’t go wrong hiring. That’s how I feel about Spectrum Health Partners (SHP). Their team brings extensive experience and knowledge of the healthcare industry to each engagement. At University of Louisville (UofL) Health, our experience with the firm has been exceptional in terms of service, attention to detail, timely deliverables, and affordable price.”

Michael Douzuk, Chief Financial Officer

Carson Surgical Group, Carson City, NV

“I was the Board Chairman of a physician group which managed and jointly owned a highly successful surgical hospital with a large health care system when that system initiated an unexpected take over. The surgical hospital CEO departed and the “shared services” plan with the system broke down. System relations with the physicians became tenuous and negotiations stalled.

Into that difficult situation we brought Ken Doran, President and CEO of Spectrum Health Partners to serve first as Interim CFO and then Interim CEO/CRO. He brought clarity of analysis and insight to the problems. He offered wise counsel to the Physicians/Health System and earned their trust. He was also a dynamic and an innovative CEO. Employee morale was improved and eventually an equitable transaction between the physicians and the system was accomplished.

I worked with Ken for over a year and he became a trusted advisor and friend to both the Physicians and Health System.”
