RoundTable Strategic Solutions Adds Members to the Team

In a time when the global Healthcare IT market continues to grow each day, minute or even second, RoundTable Strategic Solutions is experiencing its own growth.  As a local Baltimore based, nationally recognized full-service healthcare IT, operational change management and direct hire consulting firm, we understand the need to perform at the same rate and momentum as the rapidly growing industry.

In order to keep up with the growth, expected to reach $280.25 billion by 2021 with 15.9 percent growth (based on Report by Research N Reports), RoundTable is building its team to meet the demand in the healthcare market.  Just recently, RoundTable hired two industry experts to launch a Charlotte, NC office to accompany its Baltimore and Boston offices.  Additionally, the firm added a Director of Marketing and Communications to the team.

“Our growing team is thrilled to have Denise, Mike and Nicole join us,” said Scott Ketchen, Founder & Managing Partner.  “Denise has a keen insight into best practices, understands the challenges facing healthcare systems today, and will utilize those talents in strategizing our company’s growth plans.  With Mike’s experience and industry model development, we are certain that his role will assist RoundTable in providing healthcare systems nationwide with proven strategies to guide them in successful reorganizations and growth. Nicole’s integrated marketing and branding skill set and experience around scalable marketing methods will allow us to exploit our brand as we continue to grow and provide the best possible services to our clients.”
