Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 16, 2015 -- PYA has served the Nashville area for more than three decades and the larger office footprint on Centerview Drive in Brentwood reflects the company’s strategic investment in the dynamic Nashville market for the range of healthcare and other professional services that are housed under the PYA umbrella.
“We have served the market for three decades, but we recently saw an opportunity to expand our presence to better serve our clients,” said Marty Brown, the firm’s Managing Principal for Consulting Services. “When we found the executive we wanted to lead the expanded effort, we moved forward.”
That executive is Shannon Sumner, former Senior Vice President and Chief Quality Officer for CHAN HEALTHCARE, who rejoined PYA as a Principal in late 2013. She had previously served as a Senior Consultant in Audit and Physician Services at PYA before joining CHAN in 1997.
“During the past year, about 30 PYA professionals have worked on either a full-time or part-time basis out of our Nashville office supporting more than 40 Nashville area clients,” Sumner said. “As a result of the Nashville client base, our opportunities have continued to expand nationally.”
PYA, founded 31 years ago as a full service consulting and accounting firm, is ranked by Modern Healthcare as the 12th largest privately held healthcare consulting company in the United States. While healthcare consulting accounts for about 70 percent of the firm’s revenue, PYA has expanded its service offerings over the years into a number of related areas that resulted in the creation of four affiliates.
They are Healthcare Horizons Consulting Group, a consulting firm that analyzes more than $6 billion in health claims annually for Fortune 500 companies; Realty Trust Group, a real estate development, management and advisory company; PYA Analytics, an advanced data analytics firm serving a diverse mix of clients in and beyond healthcare; and PYA Waltman Capital, an investment advisory firm serving East Tennessee.
“PYA is well-recognized nationally in its various sectors,” Brown said. The firm was named a “2014 Best of the Best Accounting Firm” by INSIDE Public Accounting, while RTG is consistently ranked by Modern Healthcare as one of the nation’s Top 25 healthcare real estate development companies.
“We are committed to expanding this wide array of nationally-recognized services to better support existing and new clients in the Nashville market,” Sumner said. The services used by the 40 Nashville clients in 2014 covered a broad spectrum of the capabilities of the PYA family. They included compensation and business valuation, compliance, data analytics, mergers and acquisitions, construction and real estate project management, tax, audit and assurance, reimbursement and revenue cycle, and physician advisory services.
The PYA expansion offers career growth opportunities for professionals in the Nashville area.
“PYA is currently recruiting to fill 30 open positions in specialties such as population health management, data analytics, real estate development and advisory services, regulatory compliance, business and compensation valuation, assurance and tax,” Sumner said. “Many of these opportunities are available in Nashville for the right qualified individuals.”
