Robert Colvin, a highly regarded healthcare executive with a track record of successful innovation, has been named president of strategicplanningMD. Colvin, whose addition to the strategicplanningMD management team is expected to fuel the company’s early growth of strategic planning software and healthcare consulting services, was formerly president and chief executive officer of The Colvin Group, a healthcare consulting company that offers decisive planning, physician practices services, leadership development, and healthcare specialty expertise.
Colvin’s rich background includes more than a quarter-century of CEO and senior management experience leading hospitals and health systems, including a 530-bed academic medical center, a for-profit hospital, multiple suburban facilities, and several small, rural community hospitals. The depth of his experience includes Level 1 trauma centers, large multi-specialty physician groups, regional air and ground ambulance services, home health agencies, and community primary care clinics. He has developed a nationally recognized cancer research program and facilitated the establishment of a new four-year medical school.

He has served as Chairman of both the Georgia and the Idaho Hospital Associations, has served on the American Hospital Association’s Metropolitan Governing Council, and is a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives.

In addition, organizations under his leadership have been recognized by Fortune Magazine as among the 100 Best Companies to Work for In America, by J.D. Power for excellent patient experiences, and by Consumer’s Digest as among the 50 safest hospitals in America.

Dynamic program planning and execution will be essential. I honestly believe strategicplanningMD’s software and services provide health systems the best opportunity to design and elevate performance to the next level.
