R&L Healthcare Advisors

Committed to breathing new life
into your bottom line.

Since its inception ten years ago, R&L has worked with numerous clients dealing with issues from every angle. All of these changes are interrelated so that a comprehensive custom approach is required to ensure success. Our approach is simple – bring talented people to the table with a no-nonsense data backed approach with real world experience. You can count on us to be with you from planning to implementing. In many cases our clients have been with us for years as we have become valuable members of their teams. That is the best testimonial we could ever ask for.

We Are

In an era where significant changes are here, evolving, but are for real. The question for you is you know it takes time to research, plan and execute necessary changes but do have the time and expertise? More importantly do you know what changes will have the most impact.

We Know

You owe it to your patients employees and yourself to get the answers and direction so that your organization can thrive in an ever more demanding and regulated industry.  These changes are here to stay and should be viewed as an opportunity.

We Offer

The beginning of this shift and those entities that embrace change will prosper and grow. Those that avoid change will be left on the sidelines wondering why they are no longer viable. R&L is uniquely positioned to provide the expertise necessary to make these changes. 


The cure for the status quo.

Effective, efficient healthcare is fundamentally based on diligent research, unprecedented breakthroughs and positive results. This same commitment and intensive care that you give your patients are required to improve your financials, streamline operations and drive strategic growth. But keeping a pulse on external pressures and regulations, while maintaining a critical eye on day-to-day processes and balance sheets, is time consuming and, frankly, not your core expertise. Whether you have specific issues that demand attention, you need to identify cost-cutting measures without jeopardizing patient safety or quality of care, or you’re looking to re-engineer your entire operation, R&L gets the job done so you and your team stay focused on what you do best – saving lives.
