5. Prism's leadership promotions support the firm's expanding portfolio of services and base of healthcare provider clients.

"We partner with clients in key verticals in the provider space, such as academic medical centers, children's hospitals, integrated delivery systems and community hospitals." 

Mr. Shade cited examples of these clients, including Children's Hospital of Orange (Calif.) County, Aspirus (Wausau, Wis.), Duke Health (Durham, N.C.), United Health Services (Binghamton, N.Y.), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare (Chicago), Providence Health and Services (Renton, Wash.) and Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth (Kan.).

6. "It's very exciting for me to see the growth and evolution of Prism Healthcare Partners," says Scott Becker, publisher of Becker's Healthcare.

"This team started this firm just a few years ago with some the most respected, senior level hands-on consultants in healthcare. I've known David Shade and Mukesh Gangwal for nearly two decades. What they have accomplished in the last three years with Prism is nothing short of remarkable. Prism is in a mode of terrific growth, and the promotions of David to chairman of the board, Mukesh to president and CEO, and Brad to COO reflect this growth and preparation for the next decade."

7. "Mukesh and Brad have been pivotal in establishing Prism as a premier healthcare consultancy," says Mr. Shade. "With their deep experience, understanding of the challenges and opportunities of today's healthcare market, and vision for the future, this move is a natural next step for them. I am proud to share Prism's leadership with Mukesh and Brad and look forward to seeing them continue Prism's mission of providing superior client service and market-relevant solutions." Brad Fetters

8. Mr. Fetters and Mr. Gangwal expressed both gratitude to Mr. Shade for his leadership and excitement with the opportunity to continue working alongside the co-founder as he assumes the chairman role.

"Prism has been tremendously successful over the past three years as a result of David's extraordinary leadership and foresight," said Mr. Gangwal. "Brad and I are excited to intensify that momentum through both organic and acquisitive growth."

"David has created a powerful legacy of leadership, service excellence, keen industry understanding and commitment to staff development," commented Fetters. "We will build on that foundation to elevate Prism to the next level of performance and deliver even more value and expertise to our clients and our people."
